Holly Yoshida is welcomed to Moore Contemporary with a solo exhibition featuring a series of recent paintings comprising still life and interiors.
Yoshida navigates a distinctive path as a contemporary painter. She is enamoured with historical painting, choosing to work in dry brushed oil on panel, sometimes employing a grisaille technique, yet she documents and quietly elevates present day mundanity. Her interiors might draw upon screen grabs from our daily life steeped in social media. A networking page for rental accommodation is just one form of fodder from which she has sourced imagery. In her hands banality meets a certain ethereal beauty. The ordinary is imbued with oneiric atmospherics that both charm and unsettle. The absences and neutrality invite a speculative and voyeuristic gaze, in which we might construct or impose narrative.
