Presentation

Holly King creates large format photographic landscapes in her studio with sculptural props and painted backdrops. She is interested in the tension between artifice and constructed realities. The imposing scale of the works allows the viewer to project himself or herself into the invented landscapes, which hover in the balance between the memory of real places, and nostalgia for an imagined landscape.

Holly King was born in Montreal and has a BFA from Laval and an MFA in Visual Art from York University in Toronto. Her photographs have been shown in Canada and internationally, notably at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, the Kaoshiung Museum of Fine Art in Taiwan, and the Museum of contemporary art in Mexico.

Recently, the retrospective “Edging Towards the Mysterious", comprising four of her most recent series, was shown at the Robert McLaughlin Gallery, at the Sherbrooke Museum of Fine Arts and at Galerie Art Mûr. Her works can be found in many prestigious collections. Holly King currently teaches at Concordia University in Montreal.
