Loie Hollowell’s (b. 1983, Woodland, California) paintings, originating in autobiography, explore themes of sexuality, often through abstractions of the human body and an emphasis on female forms. With strong colors, varied texture, and the symmetry of sacred geometry, her works evoke bodily landscapes and allude to iconography such as the almond-shaped mandorlas found in medieval religious painting.
Hollowell has been the subject of numerous one-artist exhibitions and has been featured in over twenty group exhibitions, including After Effect, held at Ballroom Marfa, Texas (2016), and Georgia O’Keeffe and Contemporary Art, which opened in May 2018 at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Bentonville, Arkansas, and traveled to the New Britain Museum of Art, New Britain, Connecticut, in 2019.
