Chicago, Illinois-based artist Thérèse MulgrewHer family is a lineage of artists. Growing up, with influence from her mother’s surreal oil paintings and her grandmother’s impressionist still lifes, she began to cultivate her own painting practice, which includes mostly large-scale portraits and nostalgic still lifes in oil paint. Mulgrew explores themes of vulnerability, intimacy, and her paintings often feature friends and family as subjects.
“Most of the jewelry and objects rendered in the paintings are my own and in that way, feel like a further glimpse into my immediate world,”She elaborates. “Many of the paintings focus on hands, which I’ve been fascinated by since I was a kid—their character and beauty, the way they seem to tell stories and remind us that we’re human.”Her current series is heavily influenced film and cinematography. She portrays story through cinematic stills rendered in fine detail.
