Known for her non-traditional applications of printmaking, Holly Greenberg’s work explores the existential questions of longing, the significance of place and the remains of this mortal coil.

The perpetual learner, Greenberg embraces the experimental discoveries when the boundaries of mediums are pushed. She has developed innovative techniques for monotype, collagraph and photo-collagraph and frequently prints on non-traditional surfaces which she combines with painting to create large-scale installations.

Fluidly moving across disciplines, Greenberg’s current studio practices finds her in the ceramic studio creating multiples in a new medium: slipcast porcelain. These investigations into large- scale sculptural installation explore the moment when life leaves the body, when the plant produces the seed, when the host gives up the ghost.
