Mallory Page (b. 1983) is a New Orleans-based artist whose passion is in large-scale, thinly-layered abstract paintings.  

Page’s compositions employ multiple layers of monochromatic hues that cascade the canvas. Working with a delicate color palette, at first glance Page’s works appear soft, subtle, and delicate. Closer inspection reveals a meticulous process, in which over the course of many days, paint is poured and applied with long, sweeping brush strokes, layer upon layer. With each composition focusing on a singular hue, Page’s work is a sophisticated study in perception, exploring how measured changes in color and light can effect shifts in visual understanding. Rendered on an imposing scale, her compositions become enveloping environments of their own. Page was raised in Lafayette, Louisiana, a region with a vibrant, often mystical, culture and distinctive geographical landscape. Her work subtly and abstractly engages with this heritage, as well as with the questions that arise from acute self-awareness—i.e. the position of an independent woman and artist within a more traditional social terrain. Page’s practice is also informed by the legacies of first and second generation abstract expressionists (Agnes Martin, Helen Frankenthaler, Georgia O’Keefe) who explored similar questions of space/place, identity, and the subconscious through abstraction, repetition, and process. Though her art practice has been cultivated since childhood, Page first pursued a career in design (B.I.D., Louisiana State University). Her interests early on lied in the relationship between space and identity: how the spaces we live in can define us just as much as we can define them. As her questions became more personal and abstract, her exploration transitioned from architectural interiors to the canvas, a medium she describes as more open to contradiction and possibility. Page established her most recent studio in a mid century modern dwelling with floor-to-ceiling windows that look out into the Louisiana landscape.
