PRODUCT STORY
Holly says: Swimming III was created during an essential turning point in my career as a young artist. Growing up on Cape Cod, my work is influenced by my experiences in the seaside landscape and its culture. My practice reflects the idea that we must constantly push ourselves forward with our concepts. Therefore, these works have a high level of experimentation and risk.

I created this image by challenging my methods of making: working with the fast, immediate, and large scale approaches of monotype. The resulting pieces in this series are personal, luminous records of an artist drawn to landscape but working in the city. Washes of color are soon activated by a busy, intense curiosity with marks as a tool for expression. Common motifs and images of places appear as memory and act as a conflict between representation and abstraction.

I wish the right part of the panel were not so dark, but I like how this captures the chaos of the sea.
