Mollie Timpson is a multidisciplinary artist living and working in Essex, United Kingdom. Her art practice is concerned with exploring the use of colour and shape to create objects that she terms ‘Molliegons’. Timpson recently studied a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Southampton, where she developed her geometric abstract creations. Through both practical and theoretical investigations, Timpson refined her practice into one that she has continued to pursue after graduating from university earlier this year. Timpson is currently a member of the Boiling Point artist collective, which is mainly based in Southampton. Her work, as part of the collective, has been displayed in galleries in the south of the UK. My practice explores the use of colour and shape to create what I term, ‘Molliegons’. These geometric abstract creations experiment with perspective, seeking to construct an object which appears three dimensional in form, which is carefully achieved through the placement of the colours. For me it’s about creating a ‘thing’ in space; this being the so called object on the white background of the canvas. I am interested in the transition between the flat image to that of three dimensionality and this idea that the objects in my paintings could potentially become physical representations if they wanted. A line can sometimes say more than just being a line, it could potentially represent a fold or a cut, without it physically being present to the viewer. Within my work, I avoid using instruments such as rulers and tape to form the straight lines and edges that are within my works because I am interested in this idea of the perfect/imperfect. By using my free hand to create what can be described as being machine made shapes, I aim to create an interesting dynamic between the man-made and machine made and how this can distort the initial reactions to my artworks. When creating my works I like to be experimental with materials and processes, allowing the material to be as important in the making as the subject. I like to pay close detail to the straight edges and flat surface, of the shapes, and how I can create similar affects through these materials. I therefore find myself working between the areas of painting, sculpture and sometimes printmaking. Recently I have focused on the use of painting in my work as it has resulted in the best results in terms of achieving the above qualities that I desire for my work.The ‘Complex Molliegon Series’, is a new series of works that I have started focusing on within my artistic practice. Within this series, I have overlapped my original Molliegon paintings to create a new form of Molliegon, one that is far more complex and intriguing to the eye. By combining these elements together I have created dynamic objects that make it nearly impossible to transform into a three dimensional sculpture, yet still act upon three dimensional qualities. Through this development I am aiming to expand the Molliegon’s journey to one that engages with the contemporary aspect of abstract art today.
