About the Book
57 pieces by Denee Holloway, with words by other artists.
"Denee's work cannot be easily categorised: it falls somewhere between painting and sculpture; it is neither representational nor purely abstract; there is imaginative whimsy which is not totally surreal; the scale is small but the subject expands outward in the mind of the viewer. In the final analysis, Denee is entirely her own artist." Virginia Khuri - Artist photographer.
"With some works the composition and texture is so strong that you don't notice the subtle interventions, but the more you stare at them, the more is revealed - and often they are shot through with humour. The colours are muted and the paintings are serious and beautiful, but it is as if the artist can't resist a chuckle on the side, because the fabric and texture of life is often funny." Chris Drury, Artist.
"The assemblages are full of whit, lightness and compositional ingenuity, yet within their playfulness a dreamlike archaic quality is never far, particularly acentuated by the inclusion of found objects which add an additional narrative and tactile quality, that creats a bridge between the visible world and the world of dreams. ... the work of an artist with a vision both deep and subtle who invites us to look at the world afresh." Marco Crivello - Artist.
