Melonie Mulkey (b. 1984 in Mesa, Arizona) is a visual artist and photographer whose work investigates interior spaces and the layered histories within the built environment. Inspired by architecture, film, theater, and psychology, staging scenes for the camera have been the focus of her artistic practice and essential in creating her images. These constructed photographs allow for a range of explorations, and through framing, scale, lighting, and color, she aims to bring an emotional and reflective experience to the viewer.
Mulkey has exhibited in numerous exhibitions nationally and internationally in places such as Filter Photo Gallery in Chicago, JanKossen Contemporary Gallery in New York, Ft. Wayne Museum of Art in Indiana, Millepiani Gallery in Rome, Italy, and the CICA Museum in South Korea. She has also been the recipient of several awards and included in publications such as Loosen Art, Manifest, and Studio Visit Magazine. She received her MFA in May of 2019 from the University of Notre Dame and currently lives and works in Indiana with her husband, artist Angelo Ray Martinez.
