OPENING RECEPTION – Friday, February 20, 2105, 5-9pm
During her one-month residency at Micro Art Space, Mallorie has explored, through a variety of media, the idealization of love and feminine beauty. Intricate drawing + collage works are paired with hand-made chocolate boxes; each is adorned with edible opulence. She is examining the motifs employed to attain the hearts’ desires. These works unite in February, the month of love.
Mallorie Freeman was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. She lived with her sister and mother, who was a pop singer in the 1960’s, owner of a modeling agency, television producer, and a makeup artist. The prominence of femininity, creativity, and entrepreneurship greatly influenced Mallorie from a young age.
She attended The School of the Art Institute of Chicago on a scholarship and continued her education at the Cleveland Institute of Art. Mallorie has participated in a number of regional and national exhibitions and was named Best Visual Artist by Cleveland Scene Magazine in 2011.
