Holly Grootonk


I am an artist from Riverside, California. I paint and sometimes I draw. My art develops and changes fairly rapidly and I have a sporadic and diverse style that sometimes can seem disconnected from the rest of my pieces. I work a lot with vibrant contrasting colors and with juxtaposition and the clash between content and presentation, or between different aspects of the content or presentation. I like my work to inspire a sense of cognitive dissonance, bittersweetness, conflicting desires, as well as confusion and vertigo. It's my goal to bring the viewer to a place of contemplating dualities in life, and the rationalization of coexisting ugliness and beauty in terms of ideas and in aesthetic.
