ARTIST STATEMENT

Molly Larkey's work explores the ways that a simple line can form an object. Larkey's objects are dynamic, incorporating aspects of painting, sculpture, language, and architecture. It also examines her interest in the idea of an "imaginary" language by exploring the very form of language - letters, symbols, words, drawing, writing - as the basis for her sculptural and painted works. In her new work, Molly Larkey investigates the boundaries of language within a context of abstract painting, sculpture, and drawing. By hinting at a presence of language that never quite comes into being, she provides a slippage between looking and reading and questions how one sees (or reads) an object.

Molly Larkey (b. 1971, Los Angeles) lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. She received a MFA from Rutgers University, New Jersey, and a BA from Columbia University, New York. Her work has been featured in exhibitions at PS1 MoMA, New York; The Saatchi Gallery, London; LACMA, Los Angeles; The Drawing Center, New York; Horton Gallery, New York; Ochi Gallery, Ketschum; Samson Projects, Boston; and Human Resources, Commonwealth & Council, Control Room, Post, and Weekend, all in Los Angeles.
