Works exhibited combine colored pencil portraits, digital imaging, and large format archival inkjet printing. House iconography symbolizes our sense of home, shelter, family, and sanctuary. They are portrayed as crooked. Disquiet, disappointment, and sadness reflect in the faces. Many of us self-identify as culturally, intellectually, and socially middle class. Holder’s work explores a sense of disappointment, unease. current circumstances are frustrating, often generated by increased dishonesty, unchecked global warming, a toxic food supply, education inflation, increased racism and prejudice, inadequate health care, minimal retirement resources, rising housing costs. The American dream is now barely attainable.
