Melonie Mulkey (b. 1984 in Mesa, Arizona) is a visual artist and photographer whose work investigates interiors and the layered histories within the built environment. She builds detailed diorama sets of interior spaces that are exhibited as final photographs. These fictitious scenes are metaphors for human psychological and emotional experiences taking place within these inhabitable spaces as the shifts in scale, quality of light, and play of color and pattern, provide an entry for individual interpretation.
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 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.
