Hiking in New Zealand

Molly Spain

My work is a process of searching, discovering, and uncovering. Over the past several years I’ve been interested in using base, monochromatic source materials such as charcoal, unglazed porcelain, and a limited palette of ink and paint to give form to that which is felt but unseen. As an exploration of invisible energies and movement of those energies, my art moves between describing the seemingly stagnant to the hyper chaotic. Whether it be chemical,  emotional, physical, or the invisible tracks we make as we wander on this planet, we are constantly exchanging energy with what we encounter. Attracting, accumulating, shedding as we brush against life. Voluntarily or not, with awareness or not, at times immensely and at others just barely, but always influencing.
