Island and Accidental Tree
Holly Brodie is a self-taught landscape painter brought up in rural Somerset and now based in suburban West London. She studied English Language and Literature at Oxford University (1998-2001) where she was encouraged to explore connections between literature and art, which continue to influence her practice.
Working mainly from imagination and with little preparatory material, Holly starts with an idea and embellishes the central plot of a painting as it progresses. Overcoming the inevitable challenges this involves in terms of composition is a valuable part of the development process.

Shortcutting (route 14) and The Moorlands
“My work is that of a ‘Romantic Realist’, depicting a sense of melancholy deriving from the loss of Romanticism’s admiration of the sublime found in nature. “Re-evaluating the emotion of the romantic trait to seek the essence of everyday life”. My subject matter is about bringing to light aspects that we consider the mundane and moments which we usually disregard or miss brought to attention for audiences to develop a new sense of appreciation for such.”
