Molly Hardison’s Sympathetic Nervous2 System evokes a deep sense of happiness and calm. Using materials that arouse each of the senses, Molly hopes to create a space that promotes feelings of bliss and euphoria.
Molly Hardison is an installation artist who enjoys working with nature, free and found. Often constructing otherworldly stages that stimulate an array of senses, while interspersing the natural with manipulated natural. Molly graduated from Smith College in 2006 with a degree in Studio Arts. Since graduating she has had two solo shows at Unite in Northampton, and was the artist for their Peace window. She also creates one of a kind jewelry that juxtaposes semi-precious gemstones and seed beads. She loves dogs, and other people’s children.
