Brooklyn artist, Molly Herman, creates beautiful, colorful abstract work. Her drawings and paintings develop organically, over time, often emanating from experience within a particular place. Various bodies of her work sometimes connect with and reference other periods of her work, via expression color and tactility.
She is most interested in playing with the language of abstraction. Her 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.
Herman was born in Washington D.C. and grew up in Alexandria, Virginia. She studied at both the School of Visual Arts in New York City and Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond.
Ms. Herman has exhibited widely and her work is in many important collections, including that of Larry Poons; Georges Faber (Consul General of Luxembourg); Intuit Inc., Northwest Venture Partners and Kansas City University Teaching Hospital.
