How Do You Paint Pseudopodia? Molly Greene Can…

Huxley-Parlour, London // April 18, 2024 – May 25, 2024

Huxley-Parlour are delighted to announce Pseudopodia, a solo exhibition of new works by Molly Greene, opening at our Swallow Street gallery. The exhibition, Greene’s first with the gallery, will present a suite of eight paintings that continue the artist’s investigation of amorphous forms, the internal and corporeality. The works depict forms which proliferate across the canvas with a fluidity of line, reproducing themselves through uncanny replications that playfully negotiate naturalness and unnaturalness.

Greene’s practice considers the oversimplification of binaries, operating at the porous border between two seemingly distinct notions. The exhibition’s title, Pseudopodia, refers to the temporary projections manifested by amoebic cells in order to move, which are then reabsorbed into the cell in a continual process of animacy. This cyclical morphology, in which the internal and the external are continually in flux, and the ambiguous space between boundary and body are a point of departure in Greene’s work. Depicting the internal upon an external surface, converting the microscopic into the macroscopic, Greene’s forms become something with which we have to contend. In their self-replicating potential they call into question our own animacy and logics.
