When it comes to Molly, it was love at first sight – or should I say site? I discovered her tumblr blog of Postage Stamp Paintings and liked one painting after another after another. Postage stamps can be works of art in themselves, and Molly reinforces the idea as she expands a stamp’s image out into delicate little watercolors. Leaving the original, stamp at the center of a painting, now part of an imagined place.
I am quite excited (and even honored) to help facilitate the first showing of Molly’s work in the Bay Area as part of in Collage meets Landscape. You can get a preview of her work at Postage Stamp Paintings as well as her main website.
The Collage + Landscape = Collagescape will be on view at San Francisco’s Glama-Rama Salon and Gallery at 304 Valencia Street in San Francisco.
The show opens in one week and will be up from July 29 to September 28, 2014 with an opening reception on Friday, August 1 (7pm to 10 pm).
The exhibit will have two components:
On the main level, there will be an exhibit of my new series of work called Collagescapes.
On the upper level of Glama-Rama, I am curating a companion show of mixed media works, where the theme will be Collage meets Landscapes.
