Central Coast Culture: A California Cocktail

@ VOL 15 ON NOV 04, 2015

Holli Harmon find herself to be a contrarian at times, so as a painter, the description of a “contemporary traditionalist” is fitting.  It reflects her effort to use imagery that is clearly current while honoring the tradition of painting.  Her narratives are told with characters and scenes that are ordinary in our modern world. Her paintings are material records of the places and people who have been significant to her in her personal experience. She can share this imagery honestly, because it is the one she knows.    She says, "These stories describe our experience as a human being. They are always found on the edge of our own personal borders of space and time."
