ART21 NY CLOSE UP: LOIE HOLLOWELL

(April 2021)

“Painter Loie Hollowell creates highly abstracted and yet deeply personal representations of the human body, evoking our universal experiences of sensuality, desire, pleasure, and pain.  A California native, Hollowell works with a vocabulary of elemental, organic shapes and renders them in vibrant, high-contrast color, evoking the ‘pure light, pure space, [and] pure emotion’ of creative heroes like Robert Irwin and other California-based Light and Space movement artists.

Art21’s award-winning digital film series, New York Close Up, is devoted to capturing early-career artists living and working in New York City.  Providing a unique window into the next wave of art-making in the city, Art21 collaborates with artists to tell stories about their creative processes, diverse backgrounds, and daily realities.”
