“Walking to the port and along the shoreline everyday, I’ve begun to observe how the colors of the environment (the sky, sea, and structures) shift every day de-pending on the weather and light. The natural order exists and repeats. While the natural patterns shift the man made environment only changes depending on how nature changes. Through the redundancy of my walks and the redundant sea, this body of work has formed.
I am drawn to bold geometric forms and lines that are manmade and part of the port and beach, such as the cement pillars at the end of the port. I also take note of the natural shapes and patterns created by the wind and water, which have been most dynamic with storms and strong winds. My work reflects the shapes, rhythm and repetition found around the port and seashore. Some prints reflect one object along the beach while others are a scene.
Through the limits of a non-traditional screen printing setup, challenges have shaped the work. Very basic tools, such as tape, allow only a certain visual lan-guage. This has formed my work to be very minimalistic, using bold shapes and planes of color without much detail. The reduction of detail has allowed me to explore what basic information is needed to give the viewer an idea of what it represents”. Molly Lloyd
