Sally Moluf Hoss was born in Nebraska where she later received a BFA in Studio Art. At the university, she enjoyed printmaking, drawing, and painting. Her thesis artwork is a collection of large colored ink drawings. After her thesis exhibit, she explored drawing with colored pencils and other drawing materials. A few years later, she was diving into painting.
Today, she creates drawings and paintings. Forms and shapes from nature inspire her abstract painting style. She has many influences including Susan Rothenberg, Karen Kunc, Magdalena Abakanowicz, and Arshile Gorky.
I'm an abstract artist creating paintings and drawings that celebrate our human community by recording emotions, thoughts, and moments in time.
My subjects are topics such such as peace, patience, truth, home, and hope. I continue to expand into more topics as well as diving deeper into topics that I have been exploring for awhile. My Peace series has artwork with titles such as "We see peace is changing", "I see peace and it is fragile", and "I watch as peace floats away". The title is the clue into the meaning behind that artwork.
When creating art, I record my thoughts and discoveries on that topic using a biomorphic abstract visual language. I use a visual language inspired by the earth and it's inhabitants. I see animals. I see plants. I see humans. I see ground. I see sky. I feel connected to our human community on our earth. I feel connected to the earth and our experiences on it. Seeing, feeling, connecting.
My art aims to celebrate and connect our human community on this earth. Our earth is an amazing place. Beauty surrounds us. Inside and out.
