With Staccato, Molly Hatch continues her historically-inspired contemporary repertoire while bridging the gap decorative and fine art. Hatch has manipulated an image from Owen Jones’ “The Grammar of Chinese Ornament” to create the initial pattern. That pattern is then hand-painted over an installation of 70 earthenware plates, the glazed surfaces collectively become a fragmented canvas for Hatch’s delicate, painterly re-rendering.
In 2009, Hatch’s career took off after she was awarded the prestigious Arts/Industry Residency in Pottery at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Wisconsin. Since then, Hatch’s work has been in high demand. In 2013, Hatch had a solo museum exhibition at the Philadelphia Art Alliance and was included in “New Blue and White,” a contemporary decorative arts exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. In 2014, Physic Garden, a monumental 456-plate work, was installed at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta as well as Caughly Landscape, another installation commissioned by the museum and the Woodruff Arts Center. Chronicle Books published Hatch’s first illustrated book of paintings in March of 2015. In 2016, the Clayarch Gimhae Museum in Korea exhibited a selection of wall installations by the artist.
As Hatch can work on a commission basis, custom works may be requested.
