Mallorie Ostrowitz Biography
Mallorie was born and grew up in NYC. She was fortunate enough to study art at the City University of New York; graduating with a B.A. in Fine Arts from Queens College and a Master of Fine Arts in Painting from Herbert Lehman College. She began showing her photography in the late 1990’s throughout the United States and has been an elected member of Artworks Gallery in Hartford, West Hartford Art League, Connecticut Women Artists, and now, Voice of Art Gallery. Mallorie has also exhibited at the Worrell Gallery in Santa Fe in 2012 where her photography and Betsy Ranck’s paintings of abandoned buildings throughout New Mexico were the featured show entitled “Elegy New Mexico”. Mallorie has been teaching photography since 2003 and was privileged to be photographer in residence at the Awasi Hotel in San Pedro, Atacama region of Chile, in the summer of 2010. In pursuit of new and unique images, Mallorie has traveled to South America, Europe, Russia and Scandinavia. Artist Statement: My work focuses on the intimate landscape; I get close in, often within inches of the subject, in order to see the subtleties of the design of the particular earth surface. For me, the landscape is often a vehicle to create an abstraction by finding the dominant design element in each surface and using that element to create the composition. For me, photography is not a literal translation of our world, but rather, a means of interpretation. When I slow down and take the time to look closely at ordinary objects in nature as well as man made forms, I’m in awe at all the inherent design: I’m always on the lookout for the interplay of line and form, form and color, color and texture. I see endless possibilities in the bark of a tree, crevices of rock, flow of water, flow of a building.
