Opening March 10th at 6pm at the Franklinton Development Association, 924 W Broad St, Columbus, Ohio 43222
Molly Ryan and Adam Hernandez are artists living and working in Columbus, Ohio. Adam is a painter and pursues his work full time, creating commercial work as well as showing in fine art galleries. Molly has a background in photography, holding a BA in Justice and Peace Intensive Photography, and currently owns her own event planning business. Molly and Adam have teamed up to produce a collaborative body of work, Belleza. With Belleza, the artists each explore their own mediums, their perceptions of beauty, and the intersection of their stylistic preferences.
Belleza was born when the two artists found antique windows in the alley behind their home. The artists couldn’t pass up the beautiful found objects discarded on the side of the road. These windows made natural canvases for a collaborative exploration into the artists perceptions of beauty.
Throughout Belleza, Adam uses his signature birds and bright color palettes while Molly layers photographs and textures she has collected during her world travels. In a time where the political and social climate is harsh and often dark, Molly and Adam believe that it is their job as artists to remind the public of the light and beauty they see daily in each other and the world around them.
