Loie Hollowell

Plumb Line

Texts by Emma Enderby, Iris Cushing, Elissa Auther
Design by Michael Aberman

Made on the occasion of a solo exhibition of work by New York-based painter Loie Hollowell, Plumb Line features reproductions and installation images of nine large-scale paintings that explore the artist’s relationship with the maternal body.

Poems by Iris Cushing run throughout the book and die-cut and colored pages evoke the biomorphic paintings’ breaching of boundaries between the illusory and the real. An art historical essay by Emma Enderby, a conversation between the artist and Elissa Auther, and Hollowell’s own sketchbook pages provide indispensable context.

Her work is phenomenological—as if symmetry, color, and light are painted into the surface. She probes at our self-awareness, our sense of being.

But beauty is not just visual, it is also experiential. I would hope that my work, when seen in the flesh, leaves a lasting retinal impression on the viewer.
