A contemporary mixed media artist known for her emotive figurative and expressionist paintings, Holly Berger Markhoff’s stunning paintings are now on exhibit at Richard Stravitz Sculpture & Fine Art Galleries in Virginia Beach.
Influenced by the elongated figures of Modigliani and the gilding of Klimt, her painting incorporates sculptural elements and a variety of mixed media. Acrylic, enamel, and metallic paints are built up between layers of acrylic gloss, creating a glass like coating and translucence.
Markhoff obtained her bachelor of arts degree from Virginia Commonwealth University and has participated in Israeli visiting Artist-Study Intensive, as well as other workshops and programs.
Among the many places her art may be found, in addition to patrons’ homes and corporate collections are in Richmond’s Weinstein Jewish Community Center and Beth Ahabah Museum and Archives.
A native of New York City, Markhoff resides in Richmond, Va. Stravitz Sculpture & Fine Art Galleries is located at 1217 Laskin Road in Virginia Beach. Call 757-305-9411 or go to www.stravitzartgallery.comfor more information.
