 Molnar explained to me that her landscapes are collages in more sense than one.  She has held several artist residencies in the thirteen years she has lived and worked in New York, and the spaces she’s worked and lived in pop up, albeit chopped up and reconfigured, throughout her work.  Taken Aback (see this article’s header image), for instance, was made while in residence at the Wave Hill botanical garden in the Bronx.  It features an elegant glass dome and rolling hillside that nods to its Bronx companion without recreating it. Molnar’s are inviting, whimsical landscapes in which to lose yourself.
