Born in Hungary in 1924, Vera Molnár is one of the first women artists to use computers in her practice.

Established in France in 1947, she began a work of abstract and geometric painting. All her work is based on a strict construction where the line and colour are the only structural bases. 

In the early 1960s, Vera Molnár moved towards programmatic writing by developing simple programs that allow the transformation of forms according to precise guidelines. The computer then becomes a central device in her creation. But, as she likes to point out, « the computer helps, but it doesn’t “do”, “draw” or “invent” anything». 

Combining automated and manual practice, Vera Molnár tirelessly explores the infinite variations of geometric lines and shapes. Her investigations into bichromy and minimalism brought her closer to Gottfried Honnegger, Manfred Mohr and François Morellet. 

Vera Molnár has co-founded several research groups of pioneering artists, such as the C.R.A.V. (Visual Art Research Center), which studies collaborative approaches to mechanical and kinetic art, and the research group for art and computer science at the Institut d’art et de science (the Institute of Art ans Sciences) of Paris. 

A pioneer in digital art, she has become a source of inspiration for many generations of artists.
