Mollie Doctrow


Slogging through swamps, wading through weeds, and getting off the beaten path inspire my woodcut prints and environmental projects. The woodcuts are portraits of plants and plant communities, some endemic, rare, and endangered. Working with scientists and others during art residencies at national parks and preserves, primarily in Central and South Florida, has inspired much of my recent work. The work is influenced by the Western landscape tradition, representing natural forms accurately and expressively, as well as Oriental art. The carving demands spontaneity, letting go, and following the movement or feeling for the form.
