This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Holly Downing’s career offers over 30 years of solo exhibitions.

Throughout this time mezzotints have had a co-equal status with her paintings; examples of both are featured in this show.  After studying at the Royal College of Art in London, Downing pursued research on the mezzotint with a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship.

Donald Kuspit, critic, writer and Professor of Art History, State University NY wrote: “Downing is in fact a master of chiaroscuro, as her mezzotints show: light and dark are fundamental to her geometry, and her geometry is complex and multidimensional, especially her extraordinary images of drapery.  They seem lively and to have a  ‘dialectical’ intricacy with which Downing ingeniously weaves the fluid sections of her drapery together.”
