Holly Anderson works with painting as a practice for investigating sensory experiences with light and landscape. In continual reference to the bathers and sunlit subjects of romantic Australian landscape painting, various ways the body might be more strangely involved in its environment are tentatively explored. In 2017 she completed a BFA with Honours at the Queensland College of Art in Meanjin, Brisbane where she now holds a sessional teaching position.
