Holly Wheeler

Holly Wheeler’s practice conflates ideas of self-care with the repair and construction of found objects. Her own struggle with mental experience is summarised as a collection of humorous yet ambiguous phrases, which become propositions for installations and digital compositions.

The artist reclaims discarded materials that show signs of previous use and appear exhausted in a hasty attempt to ‘mend’ them. This culminates in an ongoing series of precarious structures perpetuated by half-hearted attempts at stability. The work calls into question the efficacy of coping strategies and represents the artists conflicting views on her own ability to handle difficult situations.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_text_separator title=”Other Artists”][/vc_column][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vcex_portfolio_grid columns=”6″ columns_gap=”5″ equal_heights_grid=”true” posts_per_page=”60″ img_size=”medium” overlay_style=”title-category-hover” title=”false” excerpt=”false” read_more=”false”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row]
