Artist Background

Australian artist Kerry Holland, is based in Brisbane. Her art works include contemporary symbolic abstract paintings, portraits and  handbuilt ceramics. In some of her work  Kerry has made use of painted crochet lace pattern as a metaphoric, textural language. Her colours are drawn from everyday life and imagination.  Crochet lace, a craft both beautiful and commonplace, made usually by women for decoration or gift, has enormous potential for symbolic reference and Kerry has explored this in her art.  Contributing to contemporary Australian religious art it has a voice that springs from the feminine story and her spirituality.
