W

ithout imperfections the idea of perfection could not exist; the two are ultimately linked and allow us to see the truth and beauty in the world. The poetic juxtaposition of imperfect perfection often forms the basis of Holly Addi’s paintings and mixed media works. Confidently expressing her ideas through composition, formation and colour, Addi creates reactive works which comment on oppressing themes in our contemporary society. Her work

doesn’t reference recognisable form, and through abstraction she is able to express intense personal moments, deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. Addi currently lives and works in Salt Lake City, exhibiting regularly in Utah and across the US. hollyaddi.com hollyaddi@gmail.com
