Hollis Moore is an artist and educator currently living in Albuquerque, NM. She investigates environmental issues related to water scarcity with performative field research, printmaking, and installation. Hollis begins each project by facing a tenuous perception on an ecological system and progresses as she unfolds her knowledge about that place. Her deformation of knowledge results in materialization of artwork. She brings process to the forefront: knowledge as process, land as process, making as process. What materializes is reciprocity with the land and water.
