Hand Painting hair creates lines to form something new. Holloway uses collage elements to paint something not seen in nature.
Optical illusion, double imagery, pattern, surrealism, and hair are major influences Holloway uses in this series of collage and the hand painted mural at Co-Lab.

The term heresy is from Greek Œ±·ºµœÅŒµœÉŒπœÇ originally meant “choice” or “thing chosen”, but it came to mean the “party or school of a man’s choice” and also referred to that process whereby a young person would examine various philosophies to determine how to live. The word “heresy” is usually used within a Christian, Jewish, or Islamic context, and implies slightly different meanings in each. The founder or leader of a heretical movement is called a heresiarch, while individuals who espouse heresy or commit heresy are known as heretics. Heresiology is the study of heresy.
