About Dan Hollings

Currently the works are heavily formed around the matter of identity, to oneself or a passer-by from the ‘everyday life’. I get distracted. Picking up on small details, clothing, expressions, stature, emotions, they excite me. Identity comes through the actions in scenarious that may be normal to oneself, but to an onlooker these may be peculiar.

Fluttered within the works there are discreet motifs taken from the surroundings, overheard conversations, while using the paint as a vessel for personal dialect.
