Molly Sullivan is a Brooklyn-based visual artist specializing in drawing and mixed media. She finds inspiration in our complex relationships with the natural world.
Waves & Shore is a tribute to the ocean: its vastness, rhythm, and inherent unpredictability. The ocean is a place of relentless change. Without warning, light becomes dark. Tranquility gives way to violence. It wears away at our carefully built structures; churns our refuse and throws it back at us. It hides unknowable worlds beneath an ever-changing surface. It shows us ourselves.
The charcoal drawings in Waves & Shore were inspired by the beaches of Brooklyn and Queens, NY, and Amelia Island, FL.
