Opening reception: Saturday, April 8, 2023
Since the early-1990s, Mamie Holst has been working on an ongoing series of paintings titled Landscape Before Dying, in which she uses only black, white and gray paints. The works rely on soft-edged geometric forms and often suggest cosmic panomaras, astrophysical events, and sci-fi scenarios. Holst received a MFA degree from the School of the Visual Arts in New York and has exhibited internationally for over three decades. Represented by the legendary gallery Feature, Inc. before its closing, Holst has exhibited her work at Kunsthalle Bern; Artists’ Space, NY; Anton Kern Gallery, NY; Bortolami, NY; the Contemporary Museum, Baltimore; and Blondiue Fine Arts, Geneva.
