MOLLY LARKEY
May 2009

Brooklyn, NY – Molly received a MFA from Rutgers University, New Jersey and a BA from Columbia University, New York. Her work has been featured in exhibitions at The Drawing Center, New York; PS1, New York; Samson Projects, Boston; and Bobbie Greenfield Gallery, Santa Monica; among others.

Larkey playfully incorporates elements of formalist abstraction with symbolism. Constructed from a variety of materials, Larkey gives her sculpture a rainbow treatment of brightly coloured paint, each rough hewn component compiling as a topsy-turvy monument, inciting both Modernist art history and hippie psychedelia. With her theatrical assemblages, Larkey frames these disparate ideas as humorously dysfunctional; relating the dynamics of power with the festivity of grass roots endeavour. – The Saatchi Gallery
