Originally born in Africa, multimedia Artist Holly Vaughan comes from a multicultural and well-travelled background, leading her to base her practice and residence in East London. A significant part of her methods of work comes from constancy and consistency of place in life. One of the only consistent factors in Holly’s life is her bodily self. In earlier years, her awareness about the world and her place in it developed through the constant shifting of place, people and context. Deeply held feelings and personal intuitions were carried from place to place, coupled with an intense creativity and desire for self-expression. This led Holly to focus on her own being, her personal way of observing, evolving and releasing multimedia in a constantly shifting landscape. Her work mainly consists of experimenting with themes of connectivity and intimacy, responding to the female form – bodily performance and expressions of emotions and thoughts that are intimately bound up with how the body behaves. Holly views her subjects with familiarity as extensions of her own self, holding respect for female abilities to carry sexuality with dignity and strength. Her visual language highlights her desire to honour this aspect of femininity throughout her practise through the dialogue she creates between her materials and the processes contained within her work.

“Inside – Out Connect” was created in collaboration with Dr Jerneg Ule. This sculpture focuses on various aspects of communication, the continual flow of movement occurring within ourselves and our environment, a vital part of how we as humans evolve. Every part of our body has a purpose, a way of connecting us to what is life. When we lose touch with ourselves and our bodies, we lose the true power we have.
