A keen observer of life and culture, Linda Hollier is currently living in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
One of her first wishes as a child was to own a camera, and to this day, she enjoys capturing moments that strike her as she goes about her day.
Her love of photography and art has merged with her interest in technology. She creates artwork entirely on her iphone and then has this printed onto canvas or wood. She is excited to be involved in this new and revolutionary art movement.
Inspired By: The exposure to the works of other artists via the internet fuels my creativity
With my artwork I wish to find new ways of portraying the concept of rootedness and movement occurring simultaneously. The individuals in my pieces appear to be rooted in a moment but at the same time appear to be moving in an other-worldly realm which is beyond space and time.
Viewers are emotionally drawn to my work and are most surprised by my technique. When I capture a particular moment using my iphone, I focus on the energy that appears to accompany the individuals I am photographing. I create textures on my iphone, and using various apps, I work on an image until I feel it conveys Essence and Presence, before having the image printed onto canvas or wood.
I believe that the boundaries between hand painted art and the art created on devices using photographs and/or apps are beginning to blur, and I wish to be very much a part of this art movement.
