Mullican’s works from the latter part of the 1960s display his willingness to experiment with bold forms and a diverse palette. The works represent an important stylistic change, incorporating greater variations in line, shape and color. The paintings reveal a different way of seeing, capturing the minutiae of interlocking, seemingly organic systems. Mullican’s productive and contemplative gaze was central to his practice, allowing him to access both the subjective experience and cosmic sublimity of art. Through this non-specificity, Mullican activated a meditative spirituality that he continued to define throughout his career.
