Calypso..

This first painting in the series is finished! It is 19″ x 24″ and is made of watercolor, candle smoke and collaged and sewn transparencies as well as layered tulle. I have been integrating origami patterning with organic elements in my painting. Uncertain of this new work but feeling deeply like I need to follow it.

Artist talk at Evanston Art Center..

Here is a brief excerpt from my Artist Talk at Evanston Art Center this past Sunday in conjunction with my exhibit “Silent Music” up through August 11th. My comments were not scripted here so it was refreshing to hear myself speak candidly about what my work meant. There is what we believe consciously and then there are the inner workings. 😀

“Silent Music” is completed!

“Silent Music” is completed! So excited to share these pictures from my solo exhibit at Evanston Art Center on view through August 11th. This work measures 18’W x 8’H x 2’D and is constructed of dichroic film, vinyl table cloth, plastic bags, gold foil, hand-painted vellum, and thread. It is a site-specific work designed for the Art Center’s atrium window.

Installing “Silent Music”

Holly installing Silent Music

Here I am installing sections of “Silent Music” in the 2nd floor atrium of @evanstonartcenter for my solo exhibition.  The sunlight was intensely warm and inspired me as I worked.  My exhibit opens on July 14th at 1pm and will be up until August 11th.  If you are in the Chicago area, I hope you will stop in.  :0)
