Loren Holland: The Virtues of Vice

Loren Holland: The Virtues of Vice at Anna Kustera Gallery in New York. "...In these recent works, Holland uses oil paint on paper to depict highly enigmatic female figures, exploiting the media’s hyper-sexualized, self-assured images of femininity. By distorting the usual connotations of these images, her brightly colored works examine themes of depravity and excess, and how vices and hedonistic mistakes can, in fact, contribute to new knowledge and understanding."
