Periphery, 2018  In her latest solo show, Molly Magai continues to explore the world of highways and factories as intriguing, barely noticed peripheral spaces. The manmade structures and increasingly important natural elements, perceived by a peripheral vision, are often rendered in a near abstract gesture. Magai’s portraiture of nature, influenced by her fear of environmental collapse, grants her industrial landscapes a novel, introspective dimension.  
-Elena Deem

Molly Magai’s work is concerned with speed, perception, transportation infrastructure, the unexpectedness of reality, and the slow Armageddon of climate change. Her oil paintings capture fleeting glimpses seen from a moving vehicle.

She has lived in Seattle, Washington, since 1992.
