Steve Molloy is an award winning New Zealand artist currently producing works in a variety of genera including object and installation sculpture, photography and painting. Molloy exhibits in galleries throughout New Zealand, attends many national and international symposiums and his photography has appeared in many national publications.

Photography is his preferred visual language; in particular documentary photography of wildlife, people and landscapes whether in urban or natural settings. This form of photography lends itself to the instinctual spontaneity of the moment and his work offers an emotion to the viewer that surpasses the straight documentation.

Molloy's work is uniquely defined by his process of incorporating the use of fragmentation, movement and miniaturization as a tool to view normal scenes and objects in a slightly abstract way. An important aspect of his photography is to capture the intended image thru the lens with minimal work in post production.

More of his works can be seen on his website at

Steve lives in the old cheese factory at Tataraimaka (just out of Oakura), Taranaki, New Zealand.
Where he ran the Molloy Gallery for several years, and still maintains an outdoor sculpture garden.

He is now concentrating on his own life and work.
