My name is Molly Harrington. I'm a sculptor and undergraduate student at Massachusetts College of Art and Design, originally from Northeast Connecticut. My pieces usually focus in cast iron, ceramic, and paper. As an artist, I want to provoke thought and interest in my media and the forms I create - to tell stories and incite intrigue, specifically through fantastical creatures and forms, mostly inspired by folklore, history and culture. Drawing inspiration from my own personal experiences as well as animal and plant life, philosophy, science, and psychology, my work takes these themes and interconnects them. Through these connections, I express a sense of age as well as emotion through material history, exploring the foundation of shifting and shaping materials to create 3D media. My work at its core aims to be ancient. It holds all of my love, all of my passion; showing the value of the permanence of a moment in time. Though nothing is truly permanent, I long to portray a sense of history and the passage of millennia, for the next best thing to forever is a long time.
