Holladay's home for the arts!
In my art I explore the presence of the digital age and it’s ongoing impact on the fabric
of our contemporary lifestyle. My work connects with spiritualism, environmentalism
and the ever expanding realm of technology. I establish familiar visual cues regarding
time and place and arrange them into densely textured representations.
Often times themes are combined of man-made structures set against natural world
imagery, that are often embellished with symbolic details. The juxtaposition of past,
present and future establishes a dream-like quality and suggests an other worldly
realm out of time.
I start the process with a sketch and then work in the computer with my photography
for digital colleges and on my work bench for assemblage pieces. Although it may not
be always readily apparent, each series is linked by recurring social concerns. The
subject matter of each piece determines the colors, makeup, objects and images used
to create it.
Each series often consists of multiple works grouped around specific themes and
meanings. I consistently research varied topics creating new areas of interest from
which arises the next body of work.
