Holly Andres on KBOO

Listen to the interview here. On Tuesday I'll have Holly Andres on Art Focus. Her new show at Charles A. Hartman Fine Art, "The Fall of Spring Hill ," continues her examination of a personal feminine narrative. In large-scale, lush color images, the artist ponders the brevity of childhood, the fleeting nature of memory, and female introspection. As in her previous work, this new series is concerned with revisiting, recreating and preserving history, the interweaving of fact and fiction and finding a place in which biography and fictitious narration come together. Andres choreographs all her tableaus - she dresses her people and puts it all together. The above piece is rather singular as there are no people at all. It reminds me of the many juicy images you can find in Ladies Home Journals from the 1940s or 50s, images I've looked at all my life.

I really enjoyed this interview. In some ways, we are covering some of the same territory, though in different ways.
