Holly Evelyn Smith
Sculpture/ Environmental Art
Glasgow School of Art
"Holly Evelyn Smith is an environmental artist creating work for outside spaces. The projects she makes confront the public with information, rather than labelling it as art. Her work employs imagery, symbolism and conventional materials to disguise the unsanctioned work she installs.
These works remain active, hidden in plain sight, occupying public and civic space. Consequently, we can only understand them here through the medium of photography, documenting her unsanctioned interventions, installations and political actions. The themes contained in her work develop organically from an individual response to society’s problems, developing a practise reflecting an irascible confrontation with contemporary life in Britain."
