In works saturated with color, sacred geometry, and sensual energy, Loie Hollowell shows the expansive possibilities for exploration through concentrated colors and forms. Working primarily in acrylics, the New York-based painter builds complexity and depth within each field of color, incorporating high-density foam board and sawdust to intensify this interdimensional quality. Hollowell’s work thrives on the cusp of abstraction, where compelling inversions of familiar shapes are energized by the tension between the symmetry and physicality of primordial forms, like the mandorla and lingam. “In my head, my paintings are realistic depictions of bodies and actions. Even though I’m constantly trying to push the figure into an abstract space, I can never get the realism of where it originated out of my head.”
