Holland Cunningham was born in Roanoke, Virginia in 1967 and educated at the University of Virginia where she studied art history and studio art. She continued her studies at the Art Students League and National Academy of Art and Design. Chosen as a resident at the Bau Institute in Puglia, Italy in 2012 along with an upcoming fellowship at the American Academy in Rome in the Spring of 2022 are highlights. Cunningham uses various mediums to create her work often combining oil, water-based media, photography and animation. Her most recent work is an assortment of mixed media/oil paintings and installations in which she references French and Italian Old Masters. She is an avid collector of discarded photography that she sees not as images frozen in time, but as something that is still in motion. Holland Cunningham is a spectator as well as the protagonist and player in the scene or moment captured. She currently resides and works in New York City.
