Hollister’s passion for the physical beauty of nature inspired by the artist’s frequent and extensive hikes though the landscape of California and the greater Southwest transforms into serene yet powerful works which are luminous, richly colored, and expressively painted. Although abstract painting is sometimes viewed as nothing more than color and form, Hollister’s abstract imagery is born out of a desire to evoke the majesty found in nature. Suggesting the stratigraphy of earthen forms, Hollister creates works with strong horizontal bands of color which shift between field and ground. Hollister’s work is exhibited regularly in Santa Fe and Los Angeles. Critic David Pagel, in a recent review published in the Los Angeles Times stated: “Brian Hollister paints horizontal lines across juicy atmospheric fields, playing contrasting colors against one another in ways that warp space, boggle the mind and delight the eye.”
