About the Artist

Molly Gunther was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in 1975.

More specifically, her work aims to place human life in the same context as nature, rather than above it.

For Molly, paint is an essential medium for her to explore this idea of equalization. In doing so, she attempts to utilize paints in their truest forms and allow them to drip, glide, pool up, and form impenetrable walls of opacity.
