Linda Holt
2 Koi Expressionist Brightly Colored Koi Underwater Red/Orange/Blue/Green/Yellow




Linda Holt "2 Koi (down right)" 2009 Oil on Panel 12 x 12Inches "2 Koi (down right)" is a complex work of koi fish swimming underwater filled with light and brilliant color painted in a lush and fluid style bordering on abstraction. Fish are in shades of orange, red, yellow, and cream,. The water is a rich combination of blues and greens. An extraordinary colorist with an exuberant and gestural style, this painting sparkles and Holt's expressive style is ideally suited to the flickering light, color, and movement one associates with koi swimming underwater. The sides of this painting are light wood so framing is unnecessary. 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. Linda Holt resides in Boston and has been represented by the Beth Urdang Gallery since 1995.
