"The best I've seen in years" 

-- NY art critic Francis X. O'Connor, poet, North American mural historian
Holly Aldermam art Central Park Cyber Heroes of New York National Academy Mural Fellowship
"It's fantastic what you did with the light man, the bulbs, the reflection, and the firemen, and everything... with the silhouette of the light man walking behind. I love him. It looks great."
-- Tom Petrovich, Manager, Bergdorf Men's, Manhattan

"Holly Alderman's art combines serious purpose, wit and whimsey in an engaging alchemy. In the multilayered images of her Cyber Heroes project for the National Academy Mural Fellowship she makes past and present speak to each other in a lively dialogue. Icons of New York's Gilded Age mingle with references to the city of today, while figures formed of dotted lights march in front, as if into the future. The effect is visually stunning and thought-provoking."
-- Diana Wolfe Larkin, Ph.D., Art historian and poet

"Holly Alderman's art is a wonderful combination of Modern and Post-Modern elements, as she creatively combines past and present, giving us multi-layered views of diverse worlds, that include the Renaissance, the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. Her view is refreshing, poignant and magical."
-- Katherine Hoffman, Ph.D., Professor Emerita, Fine Arts Department, St. Anselm College

Collage composed in transparent digital layers, Views of Central Park blend sculpture and sky, traffic icons, landscapes, global whimsy. 

The artist strives to synthesize the location's unique location, environmental character and cultural history, to incorporate the persona and interests of the owner (here being the entire National Academy), to reflect and/or interpret each wall's geographical orientation, to capture and define the present time in original style and new edge technique, to invent art forms that could never have existed before, and to express the heart and mind of the artist for this moment and place.
