Molly Thomson - painter


For Molly, painting is a process of construction, reconfiguration, application, observation and assessment. It is a process she repeats until the point is reached when each individual painting achieves a balance between its painted surface and object presence. A palette of carefully chosen colour creates a lush colour field in each. Molly works with a surgical precision within the limits of each wooden panel, slicing off a corner and adding a curve or a raised area to change the nature of the surface or reveal layers of underlying colour that supports the finished finely tuned colour.

Molly was a well-respected lecturer at Norwich University of the Arts for nearly two decades and has exhibited widely throughout the UK from Scotland, Wales, Devon, Cornwall and Yorkshire to Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex. Her work has also been seen in Japan, USA, Holland, Germany and Poland.
