Molly Bosley began collecting small relics at an early age in the Boston suburb where she grew up. She has since then continued this tradition and found ways to incorporate the findings from yard sales, junk stores and the great outdoors, into her mixed media artwork.
After years of searching for a home in the big cities of Boston, New York and Providence, she has settled into the quiet life of Vermont where she enjoys the simple way of living and can work on art from the comforts of her own home. She has exhibited nationally and gained recognition in online publications, as well as landing the cover of the Random House book titled, The Aviary. Molly is currently preparing for a handful of exhibitions in Vermont and is working on her biggest papercut series yet.
My latest papercut series highlights significant influences humans are having on our planet. I have hinted in my previous work of my fascination with the apocalypse and this current series drives the main focus toward various inevitable outcomes. The dream-like atomic-era imagery suggests a chaotic downfall involving nuclear warfare, bee extinction, scientific testing while it is contrasted by pleasant images of cakes, pastries and leisurely living. This juxaposition is jarring and tells a narrative of emotional turmoil.
