Having been raised in Rome, Italy, the artworks of New York-based artist Holly Miller have been highly influenced by the importance of body language throughout Italian culture. The sensations inherent to touch and feeling are communicated by her drawings. Using needle and thread as her pencil, Holly sews through punctured holes on canvas and paper creating tension and provoking the senses. Her monochromatic palette provides a restraint through which she explores and expands on the limits of color and material.

Holly Miller received her Bachelor of Fine Art from the School of Visual Arts (New York). Her artworks have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions at Elizabeth Harris Gallery (New York), Allegra LaViola (New York), Jeannie Freilich Fine Art (New York), Lesley Heller Workspace (New York), and Serpentine Gallery (London). Holly’s drawings are part of the permanent collections of the Arkansas Arts Center, the University of Kentucky Art Museum, and the Weatherspoon Art Museum (North Carolina).
