Art is a pure form: it is just you and the object of creation.

About the Artist


Holly Addi (b. 1973) is a Salt Lake City, Utah-based painter. Her works examine energy, space, and landscape through tempered abstraction. Holly’s paintings employ color blocked neutrals with pointed pops of color that navigate the viewer’s eye around the canvas with meandering linework. An exercise in the renegotiation of inclusion and omission, acceptance and refusal, Holly’s paintings are dynamic explorations of formal paint language and intimated environments.
