We contacted Holestar to find out more about her work and her practice:
How do you see your own art or artwork?
Accessible. I don’t believe in art for the elite….it may be an unchic view but art should be for all.
How would you describe your own practice?
Queer and fabulous.
Are there any external factors that help you creatively?
Chocolate and cigarettes.
How do you look at reinventing yourself or reflect progression in your work?
Hanging out at my local Lidl.
What are the most important themes and elements that feed into your creativity?
Pop culture, gender bending and disco.
Can you describe the creative process behind the work and how it works for you?
Hours of makeup…while watching The Simpsons.
How would you like yourself or your work to be known?
“She may have a Fine Art MA, but she avoided dull theoretical cliches”.
Any single wish?
That the gender binary is dissolved.
Thank you Holestar and best wishes from GFEST team.
