New Blood Art Statement

Molly Kent's practice is concerned with representing personal doubt in the digital age, through the traditional medium of rug tufting. Drawing on contemporary existence with reference to social media and living in an internet driven environment through the visual aesthetics of digital glitch. Along with toxic acidic colours, unnerving phrases and organic shapes, the work intends to overwhelm the senses and mirror the feeling of doubt. Rugs that we’d normally see as rigid, flat shapes on the floor begin to morph and climb walls, resembling bacteria and virus structures, as if mutating before us. Playing on the idea that doubt can be perceived as a disease that plagues us and, overtime, shifts and morphs into something new continuing its hold over us.
