Molly Bounds Reflects on the Anxiety of Choice in New PaintingsAvailable to purchase on April 1 via PLATFORM.
David Zwirner-backed PLATFORM has shown to be an exciting new space to discover prominent and emerging talent from a variety of creative disciplines. Recently, the art dealer added the vibrant chain-link compositions of Rachel Hayden, along with William Wegman’s iconic portraiture of his Weimaraner dogs.
Printmaker and painter, Molly Bounds, is the latest creative to showcase work. Best known for creating moody scenes made of muted color palettes, the Denver-based artist depicts ordinary moments from domestic life in a way to highlight the complexity that underscores our daily choices.
Speaking on the theme of choice, Bounds is selling several new paintings which grapple with the quotidian struggles of the masses regarding choice as both a freedom and a hurdle that people need to overcome regularly. In Yes, it’s me (Strut) #2, Bounds features a vibrant composition of a feminine foot confidently striding forward past life’s challenges. The flatness of the painting can be seen as a mirror for the viewer to gaze in and do the same.
