  • Brown herself senses

     “a sort of displacement in my work - not surprising, given my immigrant status”.  32 years on, I'm puzzled that I'm still here. I am still astonished by this sense of being on a rock in the middle of the sea with the world whooshing past. I don't paint the whoosh so much as the rock, I guess”.

    Brown's work is unquestionably heart based, and, although subtle, it actively addresses the slings and arrows that life impresses on us all. If art is the language of human consciousness, reflecting something that resonates within, Brown has it mastered fluently. She wears her heart on her sleeve hoping to touch and connect with us.  And we are free to respond in any way we wish.

  • At the same time, she also started meditating.  “My meditation practice has made a significant impression on my work, as one might expect. It does however, reveal more of my inner self than I am comfortable with but there's not much I can do about that. I find myself wanting to strip away anything too obvious or revealing but, actually, it is those elements that people seem to respond to".

    It is this internal perspective that the British artist, Vincent Hawkins, picks up on in Brown’s work:

    “There's a very playful and gregarious musical quality about her forms and spaces. Although many of the images have a stark blackness to them, this could be misinterpreted.  They possess a warmth and a very human quality. There's a sense of the internal…of interior organs that serve more than a physiological function … that also possess a spiritual function or quarter...”

  •  “I like big, strong shapes and the rest is really window dressing”, says Dublin based artist Molly Brown when asked about her work.  “I am also a sucker for materials - they play a really big part too, whether it’s the wood I’m painting on or an assemblage – the textile pieces in particular”.

    Try digging deeper and things become more difficult to draw out.  Molly Brown’s practice works at a meditative level.  It is not about the artist statement, it is about what comes out instinctively from within.

    Born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Brown has lived in Ireland since 1986. She trained at Minneapolis College of Art & Design, where she stayed until the scholarship ran out. Then life then took an alternative path and it took ten years before she returned to practicing full time.
