Molly Blumberg is an artist based in Chicago, IL. She earned her BFA in Sculpture from the Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis in 2012. She then went on to earn her MFA at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in Fiber and Material Studies in 2020
Trained as a sculptor and a papermaker, her work is grounded in an extreme engagement with materiality. Through a playfully physical studio practice and a dedication to process-based exploration, she explores how it feels to be a body. Pulling from art-historical depictions of the female body and employing feminist practices of fragmentation and reassembling, she focuses on the phenomenology of a fleshy body that is a site of constant change.
