Holly Haines
New Zealand emerging artist


Holly is a North Shore based emerging artist. She began painting at an early age and attended several years of portrait painting workshops and untutored still life sessions at Takapuna Art supplies. She works mainly in oils and enjoys the depth of colour and texture that can be achieved using this medium.

"My main inspirations for painting are light, color and atmosphere. I aim to use these elements as a means of creating an integral connection with the subject. I prefer working in oils and enjoy the diversity of using strongly pigmented colors to help achieve contrast and vibrancy. Because of the almost physical nature of this medium I am able to sculpt the colour and form thus creating an amorphous atmosphere within the painting.
Recently I have found landscape scenes and nature to be the best subject matter to capture this feeling. Landscapes have continually changing aspects and I enjoy working with the fluid motion this engenders. Through the subjects I paint, I seek to achieve a sense of openness and freedom so removing any restrictions within the frame. I endeavour to keep momentum by drawing the viewer ever upward, using minimal heavy elements in the foreground. In my present creative phase, I strive to invoke a sense of weightlessness and upward motion within my work.

As an artist I feel my style is ever evolving and expanding and I look forward to the endless possibilities this will allow."
