Shows: Cyanotypes


Karen Molloy is an artist living and working in Somerville, Massachusetts, USA. Her work explores the textural substrate of her life in the urban environment.

Drawing from the patterns, rhythms, and textures around her, she uses
cyanotype (and occasionally Van Dyke Brown) to create unique prints on paper and fabric.

“These hand-coated printing methods allow me to combine fragments of photos with various collected textures and marks on a single surface. The simple process lends itself well to improvisation. And exposing the assembled print in sunlight feels like working with magic!”
