Hattie Molloy’s practice includes facets of floristry, installation and object making. Hattie’s use of floral arrangement is energetic and playful, sprawling installations retreat indoors, buttering the events and stores of ‘Melbourne’ and ‘Australia’. Her strong affinity with photography and still-life ensures her work is enjoyed globally. Hattie’s work has been featured in Vogue, GQ, Vice and The Design Files. Her installations including spatial and architectural interventions can be seen through her work with Armadillo Rugs (2020), Urban Blooms, City of Melbourne (2020) and Cub Sport I Never Cried So Much In My Whole Life (2019).
Hattie finds inspiration in the surreal, believing that it encourages us to look at the world around us. She believes in the impermanence of floristry — the exchange that takes place between floral arrangement, installation and the environment. Hattie is very passionate about supporting local growers and unpacking what it means to practice as an artist incorporating floristry at this time.
