Mollie McCullough

Dimensions: Variable

Mollie McCullough has begun to observe and document the sky she sees through her bedroom skylight. She has been experimenting with graphite as a medium, taking photographs, which she uses as the basis for drawings. Mollie believes that the immediate contact between the artist and their work to be hugely important, a sort of alchemy. She adds and takes away, using graphite and erasers in a very physical process, and wants the viewer to imagine how her hand and body movements create marks upon the page. Photography is important as a means of trapping a specific moment, but her process of recreating images by hand then gives the moment a physical existence.
