Catalogue Note

"Unlike her forebears, Hollowell offers a representational mode entirely forthright, frank, and unapologetic about its bodily referents. In a painting shown in the Feuer/Mesler exhibition, Hung (down), Hollowell presents an upturned figure pressured—deformed, even—by two red-tipped phalluses. The work was her reaction to the media’s sexist coverage of the first female presidential nominee of a major party in this country, and stresses the exigency of figuring those very bodies at risk of unjust duress. Hollowell does so afresh, and on her own terms."

Elizabeth Buhe, "Loie Hollowell at Feuer/Mesler," Art in America, 27 January 2017, online
