Bio: Molly Herman was born in Washington, D.C. and grew up in Alexandria, VA. She studied at both the School of Visual Arts in New York City and Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA.
Ms. Herman has exhibited widely and her work is in many important collections including that of Larry Poons and Paula DeLuccia Poons, George Faber, Counsel General of Luxembourg; Intuit Inc., Mountain View, CA., and Kansas City University, among others. Additionally, her paintings received feature credit in the Academy Award winning movie, Still Alice.
Artist Statement: My drawings and paintings develop organically over time, often emanating from experience within a particular place. Various bodies of work connect and reference other periods of within my work, via expression, color and tactility.
My process is a search to find alchemy in the mix between a basic unit: A mark or stroke and how it transitions to the pictorial — yet remains a painted moment. As I work, I hope to discover something that leaps beyond my opening questions, something that I recognize and that resonates, while leaving room to wonder.
