The Visionary Art of Maura Holden

by Andy SmithPosted on

With her cascading, phosphorescent figures and blended mediums, Maura Holden is one of today’s leading practitioners of visionary art. The Philadelphia-born artist is self-taught, yet utilized the techniques of past masters—particularly Ernst Fuchs, a major influence for the artist.

“The visionary side of my work comes from the strange lands and mind-bending dimensions I have experienced, to a large extent through entheogens,” the artist has said. “Part of my goal in painting is to synthesize some of my longest standing interests – geometry, mythology, architecture and various optical obsessions – into unique visual matrixes, or “keys”. Just what they will unlock is in the eye of the beholder.”
