Holland Cunningham

Holland B. Cunningham was born in Roanoke, Virginia in 1967 and educated at the University of Virginia where she studied art history and studio art. She continued her studies at the Art Students League and National Academy of Art and Design. She was a resident at the Bau Institute in Puglia, Italy the summer of 2012. She currently resides and works in New York City. She uses various materials to create her work such as oil, water-based media, photography and animation. Her most recent work is an assortment of mixed media/oil paintings and installations in which she uses found photography as a starting point. She is an avid collector of discarded photography that she sees not as images frozen in time, but as something that is still happening. She is a spectator as well as the protagonist and player in the scene or moment captured.
