Jennifer Amadeo-Holl

Jennifer Amadeo-Holl’s work explores the complementarity of abstraction and representation, and the relationship between individuals, the animate and inanimate. Her geometric forms may combine with organic, curious, and accidental shapes to make inferences to recognizable forms, while rendered objects fuse, morph or sit juxtaposed with abstract shapes. Compositional density and scale can range from a stimulating emptiness to a consonant surfeit, as befits each paintings needs. Amadeo-Holl says of her practice, “I see painting as a physical and philosophical practice, one which examines the nature of reality, the relationship between mind and matter, and the interplay of fact and value. I am drawn by the mystery of why the inanimate, including painting itself, should so often and so urgently feel sensate. I find the world simultaneously mundane and fantastical, and therefore see the incorporation of imaginary imagery as native to reality; that is, the ordinary is the imaginary.”

Amadeo-Holl has exhibited nationally and internationally, including in Sweden, Finland and Chile and a touring exhibit of South America and Asia. She has received a NEFA award, a NEFA -Benton award, a Trustman Fellowship, the Harvard-McCord Arts Prize, and a two-year Swedish Institute Fellowship.
