The Stare's Nest by Molly Maine
Posted on November 06 2009
By now, I'm sure you know about Molly Maine's show tonight, but I just wanted to reiterate that it will be AMAZING! The tiny pictures I've been posting of her work can hardly do it justice, so you'll need to see for yourself how vast and impressive they are. Influenced by the subtractive process in intaglio, where a printer teases out the shades of figures from a completely dark plate, Molly develops paintings in which incomplete portions of birds and feathers penetrate, emerge from and are obscured by a Northern Renaissance-inspired glazed black background. This exhibition will showcase her most recent work, which was inspired by Yeats’ “Meditations in Time of Civil War.” Hope to see you tonight!
