“My work is a catalyst for changing minds—first and foremost it is a challenge to my own mindset. I use it as a way to reveal nuanced thoughts on the most highly charged subjects of our political landscape. The force of these discussions requires me to make powerful visual statements in order to withstand the buffeting of debate on all sides.”

A REVOLUTIONARY AMONG US

Artist and activist Holly Ballard Martz adds an iconic revolutionary voice to our roster of dynamic female artists during this divisive, politically-charged era. Through her earthshattering works, she confronts issues such as gun violence, mental illness, women’s rights, and racial oppression. Using found objects and whatever is needed to engender dialogue, the artist examines patterns of behavior and thinking, confronting her own latent biases and those woven into our national fabric.
