ARTIST STATEMENT: Molly Dilworth is a Brooklyn based artist who views creative practice as a form of research. Using data from a specific site as a structure, she gives form to things that invisibly motivate our actions. She has partnered with green building community organizations, climate change activists, arts organizations and government agencies to make public art pieces that address our relationship to the history, nature and technology.
From the rooftops of Brooklyn to the Pedestrian plazas of Times Square, Dilworth has created outdoor site-specific paintings in New York City and exhibited across the United States. She has been a resident artist at the Salina Art Center in Kansas and in the Art & Law Program with the Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts in NYC. Her work was part of Spontaneous Interventions: design actions for the common good in the U.S. Pavilion at the 13th International Venice Architecture Biennale.
In the fall of 2012 Dilworth was the Recess Activities artist in residence at the Pioneer in Red Hook, Brooklyn. In the spring of 2013 Dilworth installed a permanent exterior painting for the Garden at The James Hotel in Lower Manhattan.
