Holly Yoshida (b.1992) is a painter based in Boorloo/ Perth.
Her practice is informed by historical painting and the conventions of Still Life, choosing to work in dry brushed oil on panel, employing a grisaille technique and subdued palette as she documents and quietly elevates present day mundanity.
The empty room is a recurring motif in Yoshida’s work, the absences and neutrality invite a speculative and voyeuristic gaze, in which we might construct or impose narrative. Through an engagement with the process of painting, she aims to depict the private and invisible by de-familiarising the everyday.
