In Holly Vaughan’s work, the malleability of the female form and the fluidity of posture are fashioned through a process of gestation, a conception realised through the ‘photolitho’ technique, a technique achieved by the imbrication of the original image on the new digital state.

About

Recalling the essence of the original image, the photolitho process is an amalgamation of old and new, retaining fragments of detailed pixels from the previous image amongst the cracks and various textures materialising in the new ink. The work is born from a single moment, moving through media over time, as the materials harbour their own development; they have a life of their own, independent of the maker and unfolding naturally. Traces of processes previously journeyed are left fragmented. They overlap, blurring the boundaries contained within the piece.

Originally stills, the images from the unique photolitho print series were taken from the artist’s ‘Siren’s Meeting’, a film that began with a steel, plaster or latex figure based loosely on the form of a female model. Holly rests on an image of the body in flux: The way the skin moves, stretches, folds, contracts, and the beauty of a harmony achieved through the ease of breathing.

Holly has been inspired by the likes of Berlinde de Bruyckere, Pipilotti Rist, Louise Bourgeois and Marlene Dumas.
