Molly Spain - Recent Works

Opening Reception Thursday, January 28, 4-6pm
Proof |  1301 Locust Street, Des Moines, Iowa  |  515 244-0655  |  Directions

Stop down Thursday evening between 4-6 and help me celebrate this exciting new venue for my art! Enjoy Happy Hour prices on wine and appetizers, and stay for dinner if you have the time. Proof offers the most unique food in town with a passion for great wine, housemade cocktails and top-notch service.

On display you'll see five large monoprints and four gouache paintings. 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. The prints denote rigidity of structure but are only a fraction of what once was. Over time, slowly worn and taken from, given new form. From a succession of 12 total, each print is uniquely directed by the prior, impacting the next. The gouache express snapshots or cross-sections of assorted levels of indistinct communion. 

Throughout the spring and early summer I will continue to circulate in new pieces so stay curious.   |  |  515 710-3100
