Holly Anderson, Glendale Member Since April 2011 Artist Statement ABOUT
My name is Holly Anderson, I am a full-time self taught, mixed media contemporary abstract artist. In each of my paintings you will find composition, abstraction, organic movement, emotion, fluency, texture and light.
My art is an extension of myself and is what led me to becoming the artist I am today. Painting is a type of nourishment ~I've devoted countless hours to studying art and alternative healing. I also have been a lifelong student of international culture and language. My personal experiences and studies have shaped my exploration of indefinable human emotion. Working through my own personal pain and mobility challenges the last few years, I've discovered how healing art can be.
Each piece is truly an escape as i love to experiment with texture, color and really get my hands dirty! I paint with non-traditional objects and my bare hands.
I never know what the finished product is going to look like & i don't have expectations when i start a piece. As an artist, I feel the need to keep exploring, searching, and learning new techniques. You will notice my work takes on many different styles (or moods). Ambiguity is important to me, a lot of my work features multiple meanings, colors and/or symbolism that promotes healing or inspiration. There is a story behind each piece.

Other inspirations of mine are avant-garde art, abstract expressionism, nature, water, organic movement, mod decor, Urban Cities & Architecture
