'At the seaside with no railway home' 2018
Molly Gibson graduated with a Fine Art Degree from Central Saint Martins. Molly has since focused on developing and articulating her style combining her love of landscapes from city to countryside to seascapes. Molly uses the traditional film photographic process with a modern twist to create unique pieces.
For the Absence exhibition Molly wanted to combine the nostalgia of her childhood memories of summers at the British seaside shown by the saturated colours of the seaside and highlighted by the slide and swings, contrasted with the absence of the Ramsgate seafront railway station which was opened in 1863 it was then sold to a company and the sight was turned into a funfair. However, in 1998 a fire burned down the remaining station building and the sight was demolished to the ground and currently replaced with a yellow tractor which reminds the viewer of the presence of absence.
