Holly Dormor is a multidisciplinary artist working in Sydney NSW. In recent years she has turned her attention to painting, primarily within the still life genre. Holly is a current finalist in the National Emerging Art Prize 2023 and the Hunter’s Hill Art Prize 2023. With a strong interest in sculpture, she was a finalist in the 2015 Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize. Holly holds a BA in Media, Arts & Culture and studied Fine Art at Sydney’s National Art School. Her work is held privately throughout Australia. Holly has maintained her art practice alongside a twenty year career in television production with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

For Holly’s first showing with Michael Reid, ‘It Won’t Always Be Like This’ she has created eleven botanical works – each a study in light and transformation.
“As a marker of time & space, light reveals an astounding variation of colour in an object providing warmth, weight and otherworldly contrasts. A leaf suddenly illuminated or a shadow curiously awash with colour, these are the moments I look for. Naturally, the light will change and the illusion will pass. This series honours that shift… resisting and remembering the crawl of daylight across a room.” – Holly Dormor
