Statement

Molly Magai’s paintings have been featured in solo and group exhibitions in galleries and cultural centers, including Denise Bibro Fine Art and ABC No Rio in New York City; Narrows Center for the Arts in Fall River, Massachusetts; the Southern Vermont Art Center in Manchester, Vermont; Collar Works in Troy, New York; and Room 104 Gallery and Gallery 110 in Seattle, Washington. She received a BA in painting and drawing from Bennington College and attended the State University of New York’s Studio Program at Empire State College in New York City.

She makes paintings of landscapes dominated by cities, roads, industry, and the living things that inhabit them. While depicting the industrial landscape, she explores both the destruction of the natural world, and the ironic fact that this landscape is beautiful.

The paintings depicting scenes on or from the road are based on photographs taken from a moving vehicle. Handicapped by the car’s movement, the camera creates inadvertent effects, such as unexpected colors, halos, and blurs. Reproduced in the paintings, these effects help capture a feeling of speed, and add a sense of unreality.
