Josie Blue Molloy
It gives us great pleasure to represent Josie Blue Molloy – a London-based artist and recipient of a prestigious Royal Academy Schools Printmaking Fellowship. As well as being a valued print technician at the London College of Communications (LCC), Josie runs Screen Grab, a popular pop-up screenprinting workshop.
Fuelled by a fascination with her “art heroes” – including the Bauhaus, Black Mountain College and Ben Nicholson – Josie’s work explores texture, light and architectural form. Her love of screenprinting has much to do with the physicality of its process. This reveals itself in her prints, combining vibrant blocks of colour with textural elements like fluid brush marks, rubbings and collaged stencils. While screenprinting remains at the heart of her practice, she also experiments with different materials and media, including laser cut woodcuts, handmade paper, polystyrene, and hand-painted wood. Line, form and colour unify the various strands of her practice, contributing to work that is unpredictable, playful, and uplifting.
