b. Missoula, Montana, 1977

Holly Andres uses photography to examine the complexities of childhood, the fleeting nature of memory, and female introspection. Typically her images rely on a tension between an apparently approachable subject matter and a darker, sometimes disturbing subtext. She has had solo exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Atlanta, Seattle, Istanbul, Turkey, and Portland Oregon where she lives and works. Her work has been featured in The New York Times Magazine, Time, The New Yorker, Art in America, Artforum, Exit Magazine, Art News, Modern Painters, Oprah Magazine, W, The LA Times, Glamour, Blink, and Art Ltd. – which profiled her as one of 15 emerging West Coast artists under the age of 35.

Andres’s major museum exhibition, The Homecoming, featuring dozens of photographs created over the last decade first premiered at The Hallie Ford Museum in Salem, OR in 2013. She has subsequently shown the body of work at The Photo Center Northwest in Seattle, Wa, and at The Missoula Art Museum in MT.
