The new works by Ethiopian-born wunderkind Julie Mehretu currently on view at Marian Goodman, have not lost in size but are more soberly cast in a moody palette of grisaille with only occasional smudges of pastel allowed to break the forlorn melancholy. Mehretu’s familiar abstract layerings of acrylic with ink markings reminiscent of pre-historic cave paintings verge on the desolate. The title Hoodnyx, Voodoo and Stelae suggest mythology, bereavement, and the torment of the ghetto – a dark foreboding of the news that is emerging from Mehretu’s home country at the moment. Through October 29.
