Molly Roth Scranton (b. 1976) lives and works in Chicago, Illinois. Her studio practice uses everyday household objects, language, and quotidian aesthetics to create collages, paintings, installations, and time based works in video and sound that are both beautiful and awkward. Her interests lie in sentiment, longing, escapism, labor, and anxiety. She sometimes collaborates with other artists, including her composer/musician husband and her 8 year-old daughter. Her work has been included in numerous solo and group exhibitions in the United States and abroad, including the Weisman Art Museum in Minneapolis, MN, the Finnish Academy of Fine Art in Helsinki, Finland, and the Hyde Park Art Center and Free Range in Chicago.
