Linda Holloway: Breathing Room - Art Collector

Linda Holloway’s paintings are aesthetic evolutions based on notions of language, semiotics, and psychology. The nature of thought and the operation of the human mind are central themes throughout her work, borne out in visually distinctive ways.

Breathing Room represents a departure from the artist’s characteristic chaotic compositions to present works that are quiet, still, and introspective. Where previously the landscape has served as a metaphor for the human mind, here Holloway uses vast architectural spaces to focus on interiority. On large canvases with subtle metallic washes, Holloway creates a moment of reflection and awe for the viewer, and for the tiny figures that occupy her quasi-religious spaces.
