With Staccato, Molly Hatch continues her historically-inspired contemporary repertoire while bridging the gap decorative and fine art. Hatch has manipulated an image from Owen Jones’ “The Grammar of Chinese Ornament” to create the initial pattern. That pattern is then hand-painted over an installation of 70 earthenware plates, the glazed surfaces collectively become a fragmented canvas for Hatch’s delicate, painterly re-rendering.
