Moira Holohan: Solo Exhibition

The meditative process of weaving resembles painting on panel, in that she uses a similar surface to build her pieces and the techniques used embed repetition and time into the work. She adds an additional layer to the work through its documentation and representation – using video editing technology, replacing sections of the documentation with diaristic footage thus pointing to the ephemerality of all material.

About Moira Holohan

Moira Holohan (b. 1976 New York, NY, lives in Miami) is a multi-disciplinary artist informed by painting that fuses existential questions with mundane routines and technology. The meditative process of weaving resembles painting on panel, in that she uses a similar surface to build pieces and the techniques used embed repetition and time into the work. Holohan adds an additional layer to the work through its documentation and representation – using video editing technology, replacing sections of the documentation with diaristic footage thus pointing to the ephemerality of all material.

Holohan has been included in exhibitions in New York: Regina Rex, Steuben Gallery (Pratt Institute) and AC Institute; and Miami: Fringe Projects, Miami-Dade College Museum of Art + Design, Perez Art Museum Miami, Frost Art Museum, Emerson Dorsch Gallery, David Castillo Gallery, MoCA North Miami, de la Cruz Collection, Deering Estate, Dimensions Variable and General Practice. In 2019 Holohan had a solo exhibition at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden and was an artist resident at the Arts Annex, ME with a final solo exhibition.

She received a BA from Bard College and an MFA from Hunter College.
