About the Artist

Molly Ramage is a junior at CSULB and is majoring in print making. She actually took a year off from school and have been creating art for a long time. Molly became interested in print making after taking a class survey a few years ago. She did not know much about print making, but after taking classes she really enjoyed creating beautiful print making art.

Formal Analysis

The art of the little girl in bed with the monster underneath was one of the two 3D art in her gallery. It is made of paper cache and is painted over with paint. It depicts a a two headed monster drinking the sweat of the little girl in bed. The motion drawing is an animation made of series of 15 prints (squares) which she scanned and downloaded on Adobe print.

Content Analysis

Molly creates her art from personal experiences. Each personal experiences have powerful or overwhelming emotion which inspires her creation. When you step into her gallery, they is a surreal atmosphere. All the drawing were very unconventional. When you look at the images, they are definitely not pretty, but they do have a certain charisma.

Synthesis/ My experience

Molly’s art is beautiful because it has so much character. Her art reminds of a Tim Burton movie because her art has a dark, sullen aura. I especially loved the sculpture of the two headed monster. I find myself gravitating towards this piece because of the story behind it and because of its unconventional art style.
