Lisa Holden (born in London, lives and works in Amsterdam) studied art at Leeds University, the Rietveld Academie and Ateliers Arnhem. Her multi-layered works explore her ongoing interest in themes of personal and collective identity and constructed realities. Her interpretations of identity and the fabric of memory blend imagery from classical art, early photography and consumer culture. Holden constructs images out of multiple layers building in ambiguity; which in turn creates a space into which viewers can insert themselves and their own narrative. In a painstaking process, Holden integrates hand-painted sections into her digital compositions, often photographing and re-photographing parts of the image to produce a final work that has a sense of depth, texture and movement.
Lisa Holden has exhibited in the USA, the UK and throughout Europe. Holden's work is represented in a number of museums and corporate and private collections, and has been featured in magazines, books and documentaries.
