EXHIBITION: Polly Hollyoak - Cacophony


Straddling the boundaries between abstraction and representational forms, my work explores, colour, pattern and layering through the medium of painting. Borrowing freely from media imagery in our consumer culture it explores notions of consumption and desire by highlighting the volume and cacophony of imagery to which we are incessantly exposed. As a female artist I am particularly drawn to the imagery used in the marketing towards women. I find society’s obsession intriguing and my work intends to reflect this.

I have successfully completed both a Bachelor of Fine Arts (painting) and a Masters of Fine Arts, graduating with distinction in both degrees and I hold a trade certificate in signwriting.
