"The World in the Corner"

I am so happy to discover that my image “Flashing by!” is being exhibited in one of the windows of a café in the Miraflor district of Porto, Portugal.
A very big thank you to the director at the MIRA Galleries and creator of the MIRA Mobile Prize, who writes:

“Since last year we have organized MIP_OFF, a parallel event where photographers are invited to organize their exhibitions in improbable places: cafés, restaurants, ruins, cars, public gardens, associations ... Almost 50 authors accepted the challenge and the event is all over the city!

In the corner of Miraflor Street (where MIRA Galleries are), in a nice and well known café we exhibit in the big windows MIRA Mobile Photographies of the participants in the contests MMPrize. It is a success because the main railway station is 3 minutes walk and a lot of people stop to enjoy an exhibition in an improbable place.”

The moment I saw it online I loved it and am not disappointed.  It radiates positive energy and light with mesmerizing textures and colours. It is such an honour to now be able to enjoy it every day.  Thank you Linda."

Living in Canada at the Moment

Let's see . . . I was born and grew up in South Africa, but have also spent 10 years living in Germany and another 10 years living in the United Arab Emirates. I am currently living in Canada.  

The Journey Continues . . .
at the Ras Al Khaimah Fine Arts Festival
February 4 - March 31
Read about my trip to the U.A.E. and my
participation in the Festival
 at "Where is Linda"

My two works, Dissolving and Change, were exhibited outside in the area called Bayt 3. "This area's artworks explore the relationship between intimacy, spirituality, imagination, and the self, revealing the interconnection of personal growth with the intangible world. Outside, we are invited to consider a journey of self-actualization through the ethereal and sublime, while inside we are invited to do so through representations of dreams and narratives. This section of the exhibition asks us to reflect on our deep-rooted values and uncover what drives our journey of personal growth.”

Let's talk about iPhoneart

Mobile Art is a technology based art form, and refers to art created on a mobile device, whether that be a smartphone or tablet. Some artists paint on their mobile devices, others create collage works, others start off with or incorporate stock images, while others begin by capturing their own images on their devices. Some artists start off capturing an image on their phone and then edit it on their tablet.  In all instances the use of a variety of apps is part of their process.   

 

Because I have chosen to create my artworks entirely on my iPhone - I capture my own images on my iPhone and then edit them on my iPhone using apps - I use the term iPhoneart which I consider a sub-category of Mobile Art.

Linda Hollier Logo
My Logo

My logo was especially designed for me by Amir Hossein Golshani.

As my iPhoneart journey began when I was living in the UAE I thought it appropriate to incorporate both Arabic and English into the design. My logo therefore says Linda in these two languages. 

My logo is a witness to my vision of diversity within unity.  It fascinates viewers and evokes discussion.  It poses the question of "where is home?" and helps us to remember that we have more similarities than differences.
