About the Artist

Holly Cerna (1998) graduated with a BFA at the Maryland Institute College of Art in May of 2020. Her work consists of oil and acrylic paintings. Narrative and art historical references come together in her paintings that have an emotional and intimate feel to them. Her work explores the effects that social technologies (image sharing and social media) have on contemporary American society. Her more recent body of work explores how color relates to emotion and light as a representation of the soul or consciousness.

Artist Statement

Holly Cerna is a figure and landscape painter whose works explore the relationship between the temporary, tangible physical plane and the intangible, eternal metaphysical plane (spirit or energy) set in contemporary contexts. Her subjects emit a glowing inner light representing the soul, communicating how consciousness might appear if visible. Through color theory, contrast, saturation, and perspective, her work expresses her fascination with the human condition.Holly’s paintings are characterized by the use of commonplace objects, settings, and her everyday experiences. Her pieces comment on the aesthetic of everyday middle class life and compare it to our “magical” inner world. She depicts daily life with subject matter in an atmosphere of transcendence. She tries to establish a connection between audience and subject by objectifying emotions or mental states and exposing the duality that develops through different interpretations. These captured moments could go unnoticed in their original context.
