Scene with Sliced Bread, Sundown // Holly Coulis // 2017 // oil on linen // 30.13 x 24 in
“Days and Nights, Lemons” is the title of a recent show of work by Holly Coulis in Cherry and Martin Gallery. In this body of work various still life scenes are painted on linen. Images of wine bottles, glasses, fruits and utensils are some of the main subjects. These objects are characteristic of traditional Dutch still life paintings from the 1600s. Here Coulis creates a modern still life through bold colors and stylized forms.
