Absurdities of Life

I came across a fellow artist and blogger who creatively uses a wide range of media for her figurative, allegorical and symbolic art. She plays with images and drawings highlighting the absurdities of our contemporary world.

Gillian Holding says, "My art practice engages with the often absurd and contradictory aspects of modern society, highlighted by shifting perceptions and alternative views of what constitutes 'reality'. Anything and everything may come under scrutiny, from the chaotic daily confusion of my domestic life through to broader geopolital issues of conflict and resolution."

I find her blog refreshing, light-hearted, insightful, and very creative. She focuses on a daily self reflection in her art. My favorite is The Dishwasher #adailyselfreflection #draw365 posted on January 25th.

She posts and creates art daily.....an inspiration!


  1. Thank you for your kind comments, Joanne. I am still a bit of a newbie in the blogosphere, so it is lovely to get feedback like this! Much appreciated.

  2. Hi Gillian,

    You are welcome! I truly enjoy your art & insights :)
