MOLLY MAGAI Poster-email[5]
Molly Magai makes paintings of landscapes dominated by cities, roads, industry, and the living things that inhabit them. These structures, created for human convenience, are very much in conflict with nature. They are also an awe-inspiring human accomplishment, the work of generations of builders and engineers. Most of us ignore these landscapes as we pass by them. Magai’s job as a genre painter is to make you see them, in their destructiveness and their beauty.

Magai make paintings based on snapshots she takes from a moving vehicle. Handicapped by the car’s speed, the camera creates inadvertent effects – unexpected colors, halos, and blurs. She is interested in the sensation of speed, and the way the image is filtered first through the camera, the painter, and the painting.
