Visiting Artist
London-based artist, Molly Smyth's works are highly personal mediations on shapes and images arising from experience of physical presence and absence. The qualities of mass, hollowness, density, exposure and restricted visibility are employed rigorously in Smyth's sculptures. These qualities are used to impart values that are often temporal and concerned with withheld revelation. The bodies or structures of the sculptures often contain 'events' which describe formal narratives in the materials that incur poetic resonance.
