Holly Halkes

Naomi Boiko Stapleton

Irony underlies the works of Holly Halkes, a London-based British artist who paintslife-inspired tragi-comedies. Chaotic and brilliant food fights, where time andspace are suspended, almost crystallised in the gesture of a hand trying to graspsomething out of reach.
