Holly Keogh: Overlaps and Interlocking

May 19 - September 3, 2023

Mint Museum Uptown


About The Artist

Holly Keogh’s work offers rich entry points into abstracted, kaleidoscopic realities—containing domestic scenes, lush environments, overlaid portraits and objects of leisure—painted in lucid washes, pressed pigment, or realistic renderings. Emboldened by saturated palettes, Keogh’s paintings reveal layers and nuance, and in her words, “a way for me to occupy space and explore personas in . . .fluid way.” They depict both the inner and outer realms, the abstract and figural, the memory and matter. A dream-like sensibility and cerebral exploration are ever-present in her work, heightening the subtle psychological and emotional resonance at play. She observes, “I’m creating these interior worlds using collage and imagery that I’m…sourcing from the debris of imagery all around us.” By reimagining visuals pulled from her photography as well as found archival material, these paintings become looking glasses that aim to evoke a personalized, visceral response from viewers.
