HOLLY CHAMBERS

Holly Chambers approaches drawing by simply drawing a line. However, through an obsessive process of repetition the line is contorted and a form, or rather a surface, is brought into existence.

The work is thrown into the world of illusion, but remains rooted in a process that allows and encourages the compositions of the drawings to appear organically.

Holly graduated from University of St. Andrews (2009) and City and Guilds of London Art School (2010).

In 2010 she was Project Leader at London Zoo for the Big Draw event combining artistic instruction and environmental education and teaching art to over 1,500 visitors to the Zoo.
