ARTmonday: Hadley Holliday

Photo: Style Section L.A.

This morning, while reading through clips from L.A. style writers,  I came across a post about Los Angeles artist Hadley Holliday by Sierra Feldner-Shaw on Style Section L.A., a site I’ve now bookmarked.  I was immediately taken by Holliday’s work, especially the ones that give off a sort of really loose Frank Stella vibe, though the watery almost leopard print pieces are absolutely gorgeous (and I’m not even the animal print type.)

Feldner-Shaw came across Holliday’s work first in the apartment of shoe designer Beatrice Valenzuela, and second, in the home of jewelry designer Kathryn Bentley. The writer says, “The L.A. artist was clearly tapping into something fashion-savvy women were digging.” You can add me to that group.

Hadley Holliday went to RISD and the California Institute of the Arts (as well as the University of Kansas – she’s a Kansas City, Missouri girl). She works and lives in East L.A. and shows at the Solway Jones Gallery in L.A.’s Chinatown.
