From Molly Dilworth…For me, creative practice is a tool for investigation and problem solving. Using data from a specific site as a structure, I give form to the things that invisibly motivate our actions. I have partnered with green building organizations, climate change activists, arts organizations and government agencies to make public art that addresses our relationship to history, nature and technology. Currently, I am investigating the relationship of domestic space, global trade, feminism, labor and craft.
From the rooftops of Brooklyn to the Pedestrian plazas of Times Square, I have created outdoor site-specific paintings in New York City and exhibited across the United States. I have been a resident artist at the Salina Art Center in Kansas and in the Art & Law Program with the Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts in NYC. My work was part of Spontaneous Interventions: design actions for the common good in the U.S. Pavilion at the 13th International Venice Architecture Biennale.
I have been an artist in residence at Recess Activities/Pioneer Works (2012), in the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Workspace Program (2013) and Smack-Mellon (2014). In the spring of 2013 I installed a permanent exterior painting for the Garden at The James Hotel in Lower Manhattan. Recent commissions include a 6,000 sq. ft. mural for Toledo, a temporary garden for a city block in Seattle, and a sculpture for a light rail station in Denver.
