Molly McCrosson is the artist for the month of July.
Molly McCrosson Artist Statement
I’ve painted my whole life. In 2016 I realized that the time to paint full-time had arrived. That ﬁrst year was a visual-brainstorm. Now I ﬁnd that I’m deconstructing and reconstructing: perspective, color theory, composition, space, line and the act of painting, exploring each part. Emotionally, I’m deconstructing identity: female, male and child, spectrums of self and other, stories that overlay one another making each part shimmer.
The further I go into my past, the closer I am to my future. Past and the future seem to be rewriting each other. Gratefully, it turns out, my artist’s life is an eternal feast! The more I eat, the hungrier I am!
