MOREMEN MOLONEY, a contemporary art gallery, located in Louisville’s Butchertown neighborhood, was founded by art enthusiast and collector Susan Moremen and interior designer Susan Moloney Byrd. The gallery’s focus is a continually evolving selection of  contemporary art by established and mid-career artists including works by emerging Cuban artists.

MOREMEN MOLONEY showcases work that deserves more than a passing glance, work that is provocative yet approachable, work that is timeless, pleases the eye and lives in harmony in its place.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Sculpture:

I work in large stainless and small bronze, using sweeping lines in an abstract language of rhythm and grace to affirm belief in the power of beauty.

My sculpture is often placed in public spaces, and it celebrates attributes that enable all of us to thrive – idealism, enthusiasm and the joy of life. This drive became evident when I completed my first undersea sculpture, The Angel of Harmony, and the motivation remains a common denominator.

I promote the experience of looking up to see the works against a blue sky, so the viewer obtains what I call a child’s-eye view.  I believe this posture brings a subtle urge to move us from our adult complacency to the sense of openness and wonder felt by small children.

2D Designs:

I have fallen in love with color again, and the designs you see represent the first in an ongoing series of adventuresome images rendered very quickly. The spirit of play is an important quality that emerges effortlessly in this process and I find it freeing.

Urban Rustic Benches and Tables:

When I was younger, I slept under my mother’s patchwork ‘crazy quilts’ in which beautiful remnants came together with new life. Now I’m approaching my own winter, and dreaming of ways in which my work & play can celebrate spontaneity & delight. These use recycled materials and are all unique.
