Holly Wisker's current practice is about responding to her immediate and most intimate surroundings. She makes small-scale painted studies, documenting everyday experiences and interactions. Constructing freeze frames of fleeting moments Wisker draws upon the subtle and personal significance attached to everyday encounters with interior and exterior spaces and their shifting parameters and memories. The autobiographical element present in her work becomes obscured through re-presentation, allowing for new fictions and narrative threads to unfold. Compositionally, these works reference earlier video-based practice in which visual information was withheld from a scene or concealed beyond the cinematic frame.
Holly Wisker graduated from Central Saint Martin's School of Art in 2006. Solo exhibitions include: 'Inter-dependant', The Window Gallery, London. Group exhibitions include: 'Extraordinary Quotidian', Leyden Gallery, London; 'WILD DOG 4: Naked', The Space, London; 'The Wormhole Saloon IV', The Whitechapel Art Gallery and 'The Zeitgeist Summer Exhibition', Bond House Gallery, London
