Ash Holmes

Ash Holmes - abstract painter

Ash Holmes (she/her, born 1994) is a self-taught Sydney/Eora-based artist. Drawing on colour psychology and her environment, Holmes’ practice on Guringai land is an ever-evolving source of inspiration in her abstract paintings.

Creativity runs in her blood. As a fourth-generation artist, Holmes practises across large canvases with acrylic and oil paint. The texture is built through gestural mark-marking to imprint the canvas, eluding a sense of time and place. Holmes encompasses her research in colour psychology to give the works a sensory effect – the harmonious tones of the environment connect her audience to the landscape she creates within.

In 2021, Holmes was selected as the resident artist for the Harbord Hotel, and has been a Mosman Prize finalist, a Lloyd Rees Memorial Award finalist and a Combat Prize finalist.
