Holly Coulis is a painter living in Athens, Georgia and recently had a solo exhibition of new work titled Table Studies at the Klaus Von Nichtssagend Gallery in New York. Coulis has been known for radiant, patterned and delicately worked surfaces comprising bodies and objects in landscapes or tablescapes. Her more recent work has been skirting away from defined figuration into paired down yet scintillating objects on tables. Her current paintings illuminate the secret life of objects, reveal prismatic auras and defy easy explanations of pictorial space.
