Silent Pride.

I have been experimenting more with my camera, and I am starting to fall in love with still life subjects. the task is to make an inanimate piece of plastic come to life, and I think I am getting there. For the time being, an old Mothers pride novelty flour shaker has become my muse.

Check back for more images and prices when I release these as limited editions soon.

Why you are here, why not like my Facebook art page!

NYC PHOTOGRAPHS

I have added an online photo album of my trip to NYC. It was an unforgettable journey, that will be etched into my memory for a very long time.

We was lucky to be staying with good friend and talented artist James Austin Murray in central Manhattan, West 21st & 7 ave. The location was perfect for galleries, the high line, and Chelsea. The Empire state building was 3 blocks away (i think), we saw it as our beacon to get home.

I had great mornings, with my travel companion Seval, sipping coffee on the stoop, talking to passers by, and generally enjoying the Manhattan vibe.

I spent the whole trip with a smile on my face, and I cannot even start to explain how NYC blew my mind, so I made an online album on Flickr.

I will be updating a fair bit, so please check back from time to time.

pics include these and many more.

Info about my Etsy Shop.

+++IMPORTANT ONLINE SHOP NEWS++++

I will be closing my Etsy Shop on the 14th May 2018.
My shop will be on another website shortly, which I will
update you on nearer the time.
Also because my work has been selling more from my studio,
and from email orders, meaning Etsy has become a less viable stream of income.

After I have moved shop, my prices will be going up, as my work
has been reappraised and I have been selling way below
market value.

So grab some super art at knockdown prices whilst you can.
Thankyou for all your support and custom.

Hollis (for Hollis art)

PS. Sorry for the lack of posts, but I have been away in NYC. I will update more soon.

Seascapes.

I have been busy putting my photos of Eastbourne and Hastings to good use, making more abstract landscapes, and having a heap of fun in the process.

I am maxing out my iMac with 3D shapes, and playing around with negative space, and reductive’s.

I am really pleased with these, I hope you enjoy them also.

Hollis.

A trip to the south coast.

last weekend (22/23rd march). I headed off to Hove to meet up with art collector and very good friend Seval.

I planned a two day visit with her that would conclude with attending The Stone Tide book launch. I took my camera to get some material together, but I failed miserably as I spent all my time chatting, eating lots of cake, and generally enjoying the conversations with Seval, the camera lived in my backpack for the most part.

However I took around 30 shots of the beach in Eastbourne, and a  couple in Brighton. (See Images at the bottom of this post)

The book launch was great, and held in the amazing book / off license / live venue. “Borough wines Beers and Books”    I brought along 3 framed prints. and a portfolio of 10 art prints for people have a look through. It was also a thrill to see the book on display, and to see my art looking great.

Downstairs the book launch coincided with regular art happening “Weird Shit”, Art films, spoken word and sonic pounding bass was the vibe, and people stood transfixed , waiting for the next “Weird Shit” to happen, with Spoken word from Gareth E. Rees, Gary Budden, and Michael Smith.

Meanwhile upstairs, the atmosphere was slightly boozy and relaxed. the crowd was full of artists, writers and musicians, some knew about the event, others followed their curiosity, resulting in an interesting crowd.

It was nice to talk to so many people, and to meet documentary film maker, artist, writer, and poet Michael Smith. Also worth mentioning is the amazing artist Martin O’Neill who was excellent company over a glass of Cloudwater, and was passionate about the process of making art.

Thanks for all you who stopped to have chat with me, and the interest in my work!

Buy the book here.. it is a fabulous read.
