“Ricochets” is the new exhibition of the Franco-British artist Geraldine Molia, presented at Carousel, Marylebone. Molia explores the myths, symbols, colours, textures and shapes of the stones: a natural and rough object. Appearing insignificant at first sight, stones have been symbols of longevity and strength in many civilisations and across religion, astrology and science.
Molia’s art evokes a domesticated and eternal nature: an heirloom preciously kept for future generations. However, this poetic cabinet of wonders underlines a certain sense of fragility and the threat of disappearance. The tension within her work echoes the increasingly disrupted weather conditions due to climate change. Molia hopes to generate a conversation by inviting the viewer to question their own involvement and placement in society in order to preserve the environment.
Stones are also personally used during Molia’s autohypnosis practice. She imagines carrying stones whilst projecting positive thoughts onto each of them. These visualisations enhance concentration, imagination and general well-being.
Geraldine Molia is a Franco-British visual artist based in London. Her work is held in private collections in The UK, Switzerland, France, Spain, The USA and The Netherlands. “Ricochets” is a new solo exhibition in the UK.
