Pace Gallery announced today that it now represents New York-based artist Loie Hollowell. For Hollowell’s first outing with the gallery, a selection of her recent paintings will be on view in Pace’s booth at the FOG Design+Art fair in San Francisco, which runs from January 12 through 15.
Hollowell’s paintings utilize geometry and vivid colors to depict sensuous bodily forms. In 2011 she received the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Fellowship Award and most recently showed with Mesler/Feuer in New York. Her first official show with Pace will take place later this fall in Palo Alto, California.
In a press statement, Pace’s president, Marc Glimcher, praised the maturity of Hollowell’s work, saying how, “her treatment of the body landscape and sacred geometry connects her to many of Pace’s great artists, from Agnes Martin to Elizabeth Murray. She is truly a rare talent. Despite her age, the importance of her work is evident.”
