Molly Brockhurst was born in London in 1994. She graduated from Leeds College of Art, UK in 2016, and got her Master of Fine Arts from Wimbledon College of Arts in 2019. She was awarded the UAL Vice Chancellor’s Scholarship in 2017, the Wimbledon Alumni Professional Award in 2019, and the Saatchi Art Rising Star in 2019.
Brocklehurst has an obsession with historical photographic images, closely observing and reinventing them in new compositions featuring new players in unsettling narratives. Her work encapsulated Brocklehurst’s unique style and portrayal of human form in ceremony and ritual. Her palette flows through muted washes of colours, bringing a calming undertone to a somewhat haunting dynamic. Her exhibitions include: “Chance” (Chelsea College of Art, 2018), “HerStory” (Maddox Gallery, London, 2020), “Face//Place” (Nordic Art Agency Gallery, Sweden, 2020), etc.
