Getting to Know Holly

Artist and professor Holly Scoggins presents a surrealist body of work that layers imagery and meaning through what could be described as a double exposure in oil paint. Holly begins her process by finding both vintage and contemporary images, then digitally manipulates them by creating overlap between the photographs. Finally, she paints the two fused images simultaneously as one composition. The work is wrought with eerie symbolism. By linking a historical image with a current one, Holly addresses often controversial and complex issues of humanity and culture.
