Lily Holder is a figurative artist based in South East London. Working directly with life models, she draws on her own decade of experience working as a professional artists model to create loose, abstracted drawings of the figure. Her aim is to focus on the tension, experience and often performative nature of a pose, rather than the aesthetic. In her practice she works very quickly, often making multiple drawings of the same pose or working with movement - each time attempting to lose the edges of the figure in order to zoom in on the human.
