Linda Holt
"Large Abstraction, Mostly Blue, with Turquoise, Green, Blue, White, Red, Black"

$3,400

About

Mostly Blue, Oil on Canvas, 30 x 30 Inches, is a complex abstraction filled with light and brilliant color painted in a lush and fluid style which is the logical evolution of the artist's acclaimed paintings of koi fish underwater which she has been painting since the 1990s. Known for her love of paint and process, Holt's abstractions in several sizes (8 x 8 inches, sold individually these small works are also considered studies for larger scale abstractions that can be commissioned in any size, 30 x 30 inches, etc..) are remarkably versatile, in that Holt has a great ability to increase the scale of her works without sacrificing their spontaneity and integrity. This painting is currently on view in our Wellesley, MA gallery's window located at 16 Grove Street. Linda Holt was raised in Philadelphia and lived in England, Alabama and Virginia before attending the Paris American High School and graduating from Skidmore College with a BS in fine art in 1970. She received an MFA in Painting from the University of Pennsylvania where she studied with Neil Welliver. Holt’s paintings have been seen in 19 one-person exhibitions, over 50 group exhibitions, and in addition to numerous private collections, works are included in many public collections including the Wichita Center for the Arts, Wellington Management, the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, Fidelity Investments, Mass General Hospital, and the Seaport and Reef Hotels. Selected reviews include articles in “The Boston Globe,” “Art New England,” and the “Houston Chronicle.” Holt was awarded the Nathaniel Saltonstall Purchase Prize in Drawing, has been a Trustee and Visiting Artist at Montserrat College, a Guest Critic at FIT in New York, and a Lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania. The artist resides in Boston and has been represented by the Beth Urdang Gallery since 1995.
