Ġulja Holland (b. 1990) is an emerging artist whose practice is largely figurative and experimental. Holland's psychologically charged work explores themes of aesthetics and identity and her style draws from her exposure to different fields including fashion and photography. Recent portraiture seeks to move from its representative constraints through the passage of movement and abstraction of form. Through the use of abstract fields of colour, the artist strives to shatter formal associations and expose the fragility and instability of our subjective realities. Having recently graduated from Leeds College of Art with Honors, Holland works full time as an artist and currently lives in London where she continues to participate in both local and international exhibitions. Her work can be found in public and private collections internationally.
