"The best I've seen in years"
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.
Holly Alderman's art presentation was published by the National Academy Mural Fellowship committee chaired by Richard Haas, in the center of a brochure for the mural fellowship program facilitated by artist Grace Graupe-Pillard.
Alderman's catalog notes with the maquettes include locations of puzzle pieces in collage images, sources and meanings of each element or figure in the murals.
Central Park Angel Meets Walking Lights
"My Incandescent Persona" walks around the perimeter in niches or frames on walls (or wallpaper scenes) on journeys through Central Park and from the New York Public Library to Museum Mile Upper East Side.
