Statement

 

Originally from Wolverhampton, England, Hollier has been living and working in Brooklyn, New York since 2002. 

He has exhibited in solo and group shows/art fairs in both the United States and abroad. Currently represented by Imago Verbosa Gallery in Gloucestershire, Britain, Ap-Art Gallery in London and Clement Gallery in CT.  He divides his time between painting and teaching at The New School in New York City. 

Hollier’s current collection is entitled ‘Imago Verbosa’ and depicts a series of iconic images created entirely of text and words in the form of verse or prose. The works are individually hand painted in Acrylic and Ink, or typed on a vintage typewriter.

 

Cookie Monster

48inx48in, 22c gold leaf & acrylic on canvas

 

Cookie Monster is an iconic member of a children’s TV show deeply imbedded in American culture.  He’s characterized by an insatiable and single minded desire for cookies, a disregard for anything else but cookies, and even more cookies.  

The text is from Steppenwolf’s song Monster/Suicide/America, a 1968 protest song about the Vietnam War.  The song is split into three sections, like the title: the first being a history of America, the second, a warning of the repercussions of war, and the third a plea to the American people.  

 

America where are you now?

Don't you care about your sons and daughters?

Don't you know we need you now?

We can't fight alone against the monster.


Enveloped by the star-spangled banner, Cookie Monster contemplates the golden cookie.
