In her exquisitely rendered portraits in acrylic, artist Molly Devlin instills an aura of dreamlike thriller. She shapes the likeness of a deer or snail from layers of translucent florals and foliage: stacked leaves splay outward just like the fur of a cat’s face, fronds and wispy tendrils billow from the bulbous head of a jellyfish, and mycelium cloaks a small chicken in delicate webbing. By means of the fantastical, gossamer compositions, Devlin prods the ephemeral nature of existence and explores numerous aspects of the unknown. “I’ve all the time been fascinated by the mysteries past life and demise, the unexplainable affords infinite inspiration to me,” she shares.

Devlin, who relies in Sacramento, is at present making ready for an upcoming group exhibition at Corey Helford Gallery, and she or he additionally has exhibits slated for subsequent 12 months at Revolution Gallery and Arch Enemy Arts. Discover prints and unique work in the artist’s store, and watch her at work on Instagram.
