Molly Hatch, Memorandum, USA, 2018

Price Upon Request
  • Description
    Using ceramic surfaces as her canvas Hatch extends her historically-inspired contemporary repertoire with Memorandum, a wall installation comprised of 70 hand-painted plates. The central image of the work, a large vase of vibrantly painted flowers is derived from 17th century Dutch painting, more specifically “pronkstilleven” (Dutch for ‘ostentatious still life’). Each round surface serves as a canvas for the artist’s brush strokes; together, the plates reveal the intricate abstract floral motif of their source material. Bridging the gap decorative and fine art the glazed surfaces of earthenware plates collectively become a fragmented canvas for Hatch’s delicate, painterly re-rendering.

    In the past decade the name Molly Hatch has become synonymous with contemporary ceramics. Hatch’s ceramic installations, inspired by historical decoration, have been exhibited and collected all over the world and garnered her a loyal and fervent following. Todd Merrill Studio has represented Hatch since 2013.

    As Hatch works on a commission basis, custom works may be requested.
