Holland Cunningham, Boys, Como, 2014, Oil on Board, 11 x 14 Inches
Working from photographs, Holland Cunningham’s portraits evoke a painterly and conceptual quality. Photography and the Impressionist en plein air movement are among Cunningham’s greatest inspirations, which translate to special and timeless paintings. Working from photos and when possible a meeting, Cunningham captures her subject matter with a specific memory or act of time standing still.
