      -Julie Mehretu Julie Mehretu's Excerpt (Molotov Cocktail) is an explosive cacophony of mark-making, both lyrical and frenetic in its ebullient dispersal of paint and ink. Precise lines and rigid angles merge with expressive arcs and waves, whilst dots, dashes, stabs and smudges dance across the pictorial surface like scrambled punctuation marks.   Julie Mehretu was born in Ethiopia, grew up in Michigan, was trained as an artist in Senegal, Michigan and Rhode Island, and now lives in New York City. Mehretu’s paintings, 12 of which are on display at the Palm Beach Institute of Contemporary Art, carry us on journeys even more far-flung than the artist’s travels.
