Early career

Holly’s work explores abstraction through interrogation of material. Her process-led image-making often starts with abstract photographs and creates dialogues with material, sites and residual memories using sculpture, painting and projection as well as photography. Responding intuitively to her surroundings, she is compelled to alter what she sees, transforming solidity and the real into something more abstract, transient and ephemeral that explores the uncertainty of vision.
