Holly Loader

Holly Loader is a mixed-media artist and painter living and working in Brighton. She received her BA in Fine Art from Central Saint Martins in 2003. Having established a career within the arts, she returned to her solo practice in 2020 with a series of mercurial landscapes titled ‘Changes in the Instant’. Replicating the ancient practice of tempera painting, Holly sources and collects materials including lapis lazuli, wood ash, ultramarine, and chalk and mixes the paint by hand.

"Each work embodies the reactions and flaws arising from the unpredictable nature of the medium, evolving through a fluid succession of changes before settling into its final form." - Holly Loader
