Molly Rose Butt (b.1990) is a painter currently on the Turps Studio Painting Programme (2018- 2020) that is based in Elephant and Castle.
She is originally from Suffolk and lives on Eel Pie Island in Twickenham.
Working mostly from imagination and remembered scenes, Butt’s paintings reference her surroundings and draw upon the interactions between built and natural environments. Shapes and motifs are adapted and repeated throughout her work to playfully manipulate and depict space, creating ambiguous compositions that allude to a precarious narrative. Sculptural objects are made in response to the paintings and the assemblages of 2D and 3D pieces are collaged into a continuously shifting landscape, the carefully balanced ecosystem expanding and retracting in a process of continuous editing.
