Cheryl Holz | Nature Inspired Mixed Media

ARTIST'S STATEMENT

My work is a homage to nature’s strength, beauty and diversity.  I emulate natural aging processes by building up and wearing away paint and plaster on hollow wooden panels.  Anything from dragonfly wings to prairie grasses are embedded at various points of the process.  The symbolic implications of the methods and materials are as important as the imagery. 

I enjoy balancing a wide variety of techniques; pouring a river of ink, creating a photo silkscreen of the night sky, or carving a frog skeleton into a linoleum block.  I can spend the morning putting in a loose painterly wash of sky, then spend the afternoon rendering an intricate spider’s web in pen and ink.  I carefully collect and press botanical specimens, batik on relevant quotes or song lyrics, and construct small wooden niches to house fragile natural finds like a quail’s egg or a butterfly.  I enjoy finding the perfect process for whatever the situation calls for.

In the studio I am always striving for equilibrium between spontaneity and deliberation.  My hope is that the resulting work is a sensuous surface that reflects the process and balances the natural with the manmade.

BIO

I grew up in the country, collecting moss, bugs, leaves, and to my mother’s chagrin, snakes and salamanders.  My rural upbringing had a big influence on my aesthetic sensibility and my artwork.  

I taught after getting an undergraduate degree in Art Education, then again after obtaining an M.F.A.  I enjoyed it, but slowly became a full-time artist as interest in my work grew.  My work can now be viewed in art galleries, the occasional fair or festival, my studio, and through art consultants.

My goal is to constantly grow in and through my art.  I'd like to inspire, in others, the same love of nature that I experience myself, thus promoting the recognition that we are inseparable from this earth we live in.

My work has received national recognition, been shown in museums, and purchased by art collectors, corporations, and hospitals.  My greatest reward by far, however, is loading my dogs into the truck and heading to my studio!
