Molly McCall has created a minimal yet sophisticated approach to her botanical imagery using a variety of photographic and artistic techniques. From old school darkroom to modern digital, her creative process is more influenced by discovery than pursuing realism.
"I am inspired by the imperfections and simplicity of the natural world. The evidence of time along with the reconciliation between what is there, and what is not there. The flaws, rather than the perfection, reflect the beauty and fragility of life."
McCall’s limited edition prints follow an artistic thread through her creative history as a painter, textile designer, and photographer. Vibrant colors in her digital images merge both her love of patterning and painting within a modern palette, while darkroom images reflect muted and subdued tones with shadowed subtlety both quiet and intimate. Her body of work continues to explore the natural world and is ever expanding as each specimen is discovered.
Molly McCall works in California where she lives in the rural countryside with her husband and two German Shorthaired Pointers.
