Holly Friesen's work revolves around earth-honoring images that reflect and instill connection. These images internalize a reverence for the earth and shift the intent from harming the world to living in a mutually life enhancing manner. "My practice seeks to reassert the validity of landscape painting as a means of addressing art’s potential role in the remediation of humanity’s disassociation from the natural environment. The more I paint the less separation there is between inner and outer ecologies. I paint to learn about the infinite mystery and movement at work in the world. There is a language beyond human language, an elemental language, one that rises from the land itself." Holly Friesen attended John Abbott College in Montreal and York University in Toronto. She has run numerous galleries and a private art school in Mont-Tremblant, QC. Presently she is the Montreal curator for Art Bomb and paints full time in her Montreal studio. Holly's work can be found in collections across Canada and the US as well as internationally.
