Molly Blumberg

Artist • Teaching

Molly Blumberg is a sculptor, papermaker and all-around maker of things. She is invested in process-based exploration, playing with materiality, and hands-on experimentation. She believes the arts are a conduit for creative problem-solving and for asking exciting questions about the world around us.

Molly earned her MFA at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in fiber & material studies in 2020 and her BFA from the Washington University in St. Louis Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts in sculpture in 2012.  Trained as a sculptor and a papermaker, her work is grounded in an extreme engagement with materiality.  Through a playfully physical studio practice and a dedication to process based exploration, she explores how it feels to be a body.  Pulling from art-historical depictions of the female body and employing feminist practices of fragmentation and reassembling, she focuses on the phenomenology of a fleshy body that is a site of constant state change.
