Molly Colleen O'Connell grew up in a place which inspires both fear and laughter, Florida. Her work uses humor, the absurd, and seductive images to communicate phantasmagoric narratives with sinister undertones. She spent a formative decade in the charm city of Baltimore where she was a part of the Closed Caption Comics collective, a founding member of Open Space gallery, the director of the collectively run artist festival Püss Füst, and the curator of Freak Flash screenings. She is now pursuing her MFA in Chicago
