Molly Hatch Verse Ceramic Plate Wall Installation, USA, 2016

About

Using the ceramic surface as both her canvas and subject matter, Molly Hatch extends her historically-inspired contemporary repertoire with Verse, a hand-painted wall installation. Highlighting the visual brilliance of an 18th century Chinese textile, Verse is a gilded deconstruction of historic pattern. Like the export porcelains of the same era, fabric and Chinese motifs were coveted and celebrated. In Verse the opulence of the 18th century is represented in gold overtaking and marbling the original fabric pattern creating a new experience of the familiar. Comprised of 54 earthenware hand-painted plates, the glazed surface becomes a fragmented canvas for Hatch's delicate, painterly re-rendering of a blue and white lidded vase, sourced from an 18th century French watercolor from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Surrounded by a shimmering 11-karat gold luster background, Verse simultaneously deconstructs the past through a shimmering, painterly expression of the present. Hatch’s work has been widely collected and commissioned and exhibited at art fairs nationally and internationally. 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 painting, was installed at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, as well Caughley Landscape, another work commissioned by the museum and the Woodruff Arts Center. Chronicle Books published Hatch’s first illustrated book of paintings in March of 2015. Hatch is currently working on a multiple installation commission for the Newark Museum. As Hatch works on a commission basis, custom dimensionality as well as source inspiration can be accommodated for a bespoke plate painting installation. A full color catalogue of Hatch's work is available by request through Todd Merrill Studio. Measurements: 60" H x 90" W x 1 1/2" D. Materials: 54 hand-painted earthenware plates with glaze, underglaze and gold luster.
