Molly Wright recently moved to the Charlotte, North Carolina area from Savannah, Georgia. She is an East Coaster, having lived in Connecticut and Virginia as well. A painter all of her life, she received a BA, majoring in fine art, from Randolph Macon Women’s College.
Molly works in both oil and acrylic, responding to the thick texture and strong pure color offered by both. She enjoys the interplay between representation and abstraction and always she strives to paint beauty, describing her subject choices as being dynamic. People in everyday situations, flowers, animals, and garden landscapes, all provide inspiration.
Molly’s newer works are expressionistic and impressionistic ~ utilizing color as a tool as much as her brush. She achieves distinction with her bright, happy palette and a loose painterly style that allows for the viewers own interpretation to be part of the piece.
In Molly’s words, “Art is emotional for the painter as well as the viewer. It can change the lives of both parties. I love being a part of that.” “The evolution of my work is in my ability to get out of my own way.”
