Molly grew up steeped in the industrial landscape, in Cleveland, Ohio. She’s a graduate of Bennington College and participated in SUNY’s Studio Semester in New York. She has lived in Seattle, Washington, since 1992. Molly is a gallery artist at studio e gallery in Seattle, is part of the King County Art Collection, and has shown her work at many other venues in Seattle and throughout the United States, including in New York City, Vermont, Massachusetts, and Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Fascinated by the beauty and strangeness of a degraded world, Molly Magai creates paintings that depict industrial areas, city streets, and freeways, and the plants that manage to live in them. Many of the paintings are from days when smoke from wildfires filled the air. She combines a genuine interest in industry and engineering–in how things work–with a deep dread of the continuing destruction of the natural world. Her work shows a deep, almost romantic affection for both the man-made and the natural environment.
