Hollowell's "Middle Ground" Exhibition Opens at Richmond International Airport

November 1, 2011

RICHMOND, Virginia (November 1, 2011) - An exhibition of paintings by Virginia artist Loie Hollowell opens today at Richmond International Airport (RIC). The show will be on view in the first level of the terminal through February 2011.

The paintings presented in Middle Ground are mediations on sleep, created by Hollowell as a coping mechanism to battle her chronic insomnia. Some pieces are realistic depictions of bed sheets, while others seek to envision the ephemeral state of drifting into REM sleep and the intangible dream world.

To achieve the photo-realistic effect in her paintings, Hollowell folds and creases thick, wet denim and then sprays and paints the fabric with an assortment of inks. As the ink spreads throughout the wet fibers, it accumulates in the valleys of the folds. When the denim is dry she flattens and stretches it and adds stitching, fabric, paint, or ink to complete the work.

Hollowell is a graduate student at Virginia Commonwealth University and is a recipient of a 2011 Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Fellowship Award.
