Ferrin Gallery introduces MOLLY HATCH with selected works from her recent series, Mon Plaisir at Art Miami 2011. Receiving her BFA in 2000 from School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Massachusetts and MFA in 2008 from the University of Colorado, Boulder, Molly Hatch is one of the youngest artists now represented by Ferrin Gallery.
For Mon Plaisir Hatch appropriates imagery from a historic architectural engraving of a garden plan. Blurring the line between two and three dimensions, Hatch explores the relationship of painting to object by rendering the figures from each of the compositions in porcelain and presenting them in the foreground of the painted paper backdrop.
By contrasting silhouette shadows in her the drawings, to three-dimensional figural sculptures, Hatch isolates the figures in the garden scene and focuses attention on the underlying social narrative. Through the use of negative and positive, cropping, scale shifts and an updated color palette, the series offers a contemporary interpretation of an historic genre. Her series of drawings and sculpture presented together create the overall installation Mon Plaisir via triptychs, diptychs and related individual scenes.
Living and working in Western Massachusetts, Hatch exhibits throughout the US and regularly with Ferrin Gallery, most recently in the summer exhibition, Pursuit of Porcelain. Her career combines gallery exhibitions, teaching, workshops, artist residencies as well as a product designer for the women's clothier Anthropologie.
