Organic shapes, feminine silhouettes and natural landscapes; these are just a few of the elements that embody the works of Sydney based artist, Ash Holmes. A colour palette of soft, pastel hues and earthy tones, these works transform the space they occupy, creating ambience within the rooms they hang.
Inspired by her own natural surroundings, Holmes embraces the simplicity of the world she inhabits and finds the beauty in things that are slightly undone, the perfect imperfections. The combination of acrylic and oil paint on canvas, enclosed with handcrafted Tasmanian oak frames are what make these works instantly recognisable. Holmes’ paintings are mostly large-scale, yet their purpose is not to dominate, more so to make their audience feel a sense of warmth and comfort in their presence.
