Mon Plaisir

OCTOBER 20 - NOVEMBER 17, 2011

New York, NY - The Jane Hartsook Gallery is pleased to present “mon plaisir” an installation by Massachusetts based artist/designer Molly Hatch. For her New York City Solo debut, Molly has created a sophisticated decorative concatenation of baroquesque porcelain objects. Molly is a modern day renaissance artist whose interest in drawing, design, and porcelain paired with her content revitalize the heroic of classical antiquity. Molly is a conduit of contemporaneity—channeling Mod, boutique culture, and Rococo—with unparalleled elegant mastery.

"As the daughter of a painter and a dairy farmer, my childhood was divided between physical labor, play and creating my own art…In an effort to understand the object wealth of past generations, I make contemporary objects that speak directly to historical counterparts. I think of each piece as a hybrid of my experience…in a dialogue inspired by a marriage of American Royalty, tattoo culture, the baroque and hiphop/indie cultures…. inspired by historic and contemporary trends in fabric, font, illustration, ceramics and furniture…Through the use of new methods of display and storage, framing an item that we often pass by in our day today can transform it into an object of artistic consideration.”—Molly Hatch

Molly Hatch recently designed a line of ceramic and glassware for ANTHROPOLOGIE. Molly received her MFA from the University of Colorado at Boulder and BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Molly has exhibited at Lyons Weir Gallery in NYC, SOFA New York, Red Star Studios in Missouri, The Clay Studio in Philadelphia, and the Bennington Art Museum in Vermont, to name a few. Molly has taught at many places such as Dartmouth College, New Hampshire League of Craftsman, University of Colorado Boulder, and Holyoke Community College where she is currently adjunct faculty.
