September 2 – October 24
Stacey Holloway’s new work, ‘Somewhere in Between’ uses mixed-media installation pieces to communicate an emotion of discomfort within her everyday adult life. This emotion suggests isolation amid two worlds: the real and the surreal.
At first glance her work can appear playful, but upon examination her use of the surreal creates a nightmarish fantasy that illustrates her fears and anxiety about her lost sense of childhood and the trepidations of growing older.
Stacey M. Holloway was born in South Bend, Indiana and has recently completed her Master of Fine Arts at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities campus with an emphasis in sculpture. Within the program, she received a Graduate School Fellowship, the Katherine E. Nash Studio Art Scholarship, and the Pioneer Scholarship to support her studies. Additionally, Holloway also received a Graduate Research Partnership Fellowship with Professor Wayne E. Potratz to complete Inter-Connections in Art Through Metalcasting, a collaborative project between the Interact Center and the University of Minnesota’s Department of Art foundry.
Currently, Stacey M. Holloway resides and remains an active artist in Indianapolis, Indiana. Here, she is employed by Herron School of Art and Design as their Sculpture Technician, Metal Casting Instructor, and 3D Design Instructor. Holloway also acts as the co-founder, curator, and organizer of Bootleg Exhibitions, a new gorilla exhibition space that has just begun exhibiting emerging artists throughout the Midwest in Indianapolis.
