Molly Aubry, born in Denver, Colorado, lives and works in South Florida. She received her BFA from the University of Florida and her MFA from the Cranbrook Academy of Art. Her work explores entangled perceptual worlds through the matrix of print media. Mining the tension between organic materials and digital processes, the work imagines artifacts from a world in which the natural and artificial are inextricably linked. Selected exhibitions include Molly Aubry: Dark Luminosity at the Cultural Council for Palm Beach, Strange Paradise: A Window into Surrealism at the Annmarie Sculpture Gardens and Art Center in Solomons, MD, and Intimacy at Science Gallery of Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland. 

Aubry was commissioned by the Miami-Dade Department of Cultural Affairs Art in Public Places Program in 2022 and in 2023, she was commissioned by the City of West Palm Beach. She has received full fellowships for residencies at the Vermont Studio Center, Ragdale Foundation, and Shoals Marine Laboratory, and received a Visiting Artist Grant from the U.S. Department of State. Aubry was awarded the 2023-2024 South Florida Cultural Consortium (SFCC) Fellowship and the 2024-2025 Artist Innovation Fellowship from the Cultural Council of Palm Beach. In addition to her interdisciplinary studio practice, Aubry is an Adjunct Professor at the New World School of the Arts in Miami and an Associate with Acquavella Galleries in Palm Beach.
