A collection of found objects and photography by Holly Wilson

This show includes the most recent body of work created by artist Holly Wilson. Impressed & Unrefined was inspired by individuals close to the artist who are educating the world about conservation and sustainability. With that in mind, none of the material used in this collection were purchased as new items. Recycled, reused, and found objects are the foundation to compliment the naturally inspired black and white photographs. Some items used throughout the collection include driftwood, toy blocks and sea glass.

About the Artist

Award winning photographer Holly Wilson has been creating photographic art for over 15 years. From South Florida, Holly obtained a degree in photography from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. After graduation, she experimented in alternative photography and printing, creating artwork that includes cyanotypes, image transfers and pinhole photography. Most images are nature and animal inspired from throughout the world. Now in California, Holly continues to create alternative process photography with a more natural and sustainable focus. Holly is most known for her bold, line art screen printed images of wildlife that have been featured by organizations such as American Association of Zoo Keepers and Global Conservation Force.
