Polly Hollyoak’s large scale paintings present a dialogue between pop and abstraction. Straddling these boundaries her 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.
Polly has successfully completed both a Bachelor of Fine Arts (painting) and a Masters of Fine Arts, graduating with distinction in both degrees. Her work has been shown in both solo and group exhibitions locally and internationally
