Holly Coulis

Holly Coulis’s contemporary explorations of the still-life genre have opened up the scope of possibility between abstraction and representation. Her paintings deftly use color and line to build up objects in layers of paint, pushing flat geometry and perspectival shifts to evoke interwoven compositions that mirror, reflect, and expand space.
