Using strong colors, varied texture, and elaborately built-up surfaces upon which to paint, Loie Hollowell creates a visual language somewhere between abstraction and figuration. Appearing at first glance to be strictly abstract, closer inspection of the painting reveals that the form on the left is a distinguishable breast emitting a vibrant orange color. Often incorporating her body engaged in an intimate or sexual act in her work, Mother’s Milk differs by exploring the artist’s experience of pregnancy. Hollowell created a series of works around themes of motherhood and reproduction, seeing her body as a space of creation and sustenance.
