“The paintings are messages in a bottle to my future self. I make this thing in this conscious way because I’m trying to figure out what I think. I put it in a painting and then for the next five years I can see it there.” —Molly Zuckerman-Hartung
Author of 95 Theses on Painting, Zuckerman-Hartung has no shortage of thoughts, declarations, and proclamations about her chosen medium. For her, paintings distill fleeting ideas, sensations, and experiences in surfaces built up and torn apart over years. Join the artist as she talks about the concerns she grapples with in the studio and on her canvases.
One of the artists featured in the exhibition Painter Painter, Zuckerman-Hartung received her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2007, where she now teaches painting and drawing. She is cofounder of Julius Caesar Gallery, an artist-run exhibition space in Chicago.
