Brooklyn-based painter Molly Dilworth started making large-scale outdoor rooftop paintings as a means to get out of her studio and communicate her message to the world in a different way. Through personal reflection and introducing constraints into her process, such as not using brushes - just movement - and only using found paints, Molly's challenge became about visually integrating two specific interests, architecture and natural forms. These experiments developed into paintings that can be viewed from Google Earth and that invite a conversation about the environment in which we live.

Molly Dilworth graduated in 2003 with an MFA from New York University. Her work has been featured nationally and internationally. She has worked on an on-going series of rooftop paintings entitled Paintings for Satellites, to be seen and photographed via Google Earth.
