Holland Cunningham, Pool , Oil and Collage on Duralar Paper, 31x31 inches
Voltz Clarke gallery is pleased to present a soloexhibition of recent paintings from multimedia artist, Holland Cunningham (American).
In an exhibit of new work featuring figurative paintings and video installation, Cunningham investigates the everevolving narrative of collective experience. Each of her figurations are subject to perpetual change, by which the creation of a new story is formed from the lives of her viewers. She is interested in the intimacy of the fleeting nature of time and how these moments hold a universal sensibility. This series affirms her strong inclination towards balance and color, and the ephemeral nature of time. Through a dialectical play of transitory moments, Cunningham shares in the livelihood of the work through universal experience, to thereby create a new story.
Inspired by the furtive strokes of Abstract Expressionism, Holland Cunningham’s oeuvre is characterized by classical compositions that speak to the artist’s own passion for plein air painting. As an avid collector of discarded photography from which she draws her inspiration, Cunningham sees these not as images frozen in time, but as something that is still happening. She is a spectator as well as a protagonist and player in the scene or moment captured.
