Biography

Molly Larkey is an artist based in Los Angeles, CA. She received a BA from Columbia College in 1994, and an MFA from Rutgers University in 2000. She exhibited widely in New York from 2000-2009, including show at PS1 MOMA and The Drawing Center. In 2011, her work was featured in "The Shape of Things to Come: New Scultpure", the international scultpure survey at the Saatchi Gallery in London. 

Larkey moved from New York to Los Angeles in 2009. Her work has shown extensively in Los Angeles since then, including solo shows at Luis de Jesus Los Angeles, LACMA ARSG Projects, Human Resources, Commonwealth and council, and POST. As described in the press release for her 2015 exhibition with Luis de Jesus LA: 

"Molly Larkey combines elements of language, painting, and sculpture to point to both impossibiilties of communication in our current world and an imagined future of fluidity, movement, and the possibility of transparent meaning. This new work speaks to our human condition as bound in contradiction, even as it rejects the dichotomous, and insists on fluidity of form and function. It points to our failed dualistic vocabularies, and how the structures of power that benefit from an either/or have routinely denied the neither/both a space, a name, even a shape or form. Thus the individual works refuse to be held down into one category, incorporating aspects of drawing, writing, painting, sculpture, and architecture."
