Linda Holt
"Seven Koi 16" Bright Red, Orange, Yellow Fish Swimming Underwater, Green/Blue

2016

$7,500

About the Item

"Seven Koi 16," Oil on Canvas, 36 x 48 Inches, koi fish swimming underwater, brilliant and vivid color, fluid and painterly style, luscious. Linda Holt has been painting koi fish underwater since the 1990s and more recently small and large-scale abstractions. An extraordinary colorist with an exuberant and fluid style, these luscious oils on canvas and wood glimmer and glisten like the koi themselves. With her love of paint and process, the abstractions are a logical evolution of Holt's more figurative work, and the 8" x 8" and 30" x 30" paintings are sold individually but are also considered studies for larger abstractions that can be commissioned in any size. Linda Holt "Seven Koi 16" Oil on Canvas 30 x 48 Inches 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, Holt’s paintings 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 on the North Shore of Massachusetts and has been represented by the Beth Urdang Gallery since 1995.
