Donnie Molls

Donnie Molls exposes photo negatives onto a prepared canvas. He then paints and glazes over them with translucent layers and accretions of color. The works are part photographic, part painterly, part additive and part reductive. This body of work reveals the artistís ongoing fascination with objects and places that are often overlooked or abandoned yet charged with a magnetic visual presence . The pool shapes are noteworthy for their sculptural shapes against residential backdrops that are at once nostalgic and familiar as classic settings for Hollywood and Southern CA lifestyles.
