About the Artist

Holly Elan Watson (b.1995, UK) works with inks and acrylics to create intimate and playful paintings inspired by the everyday. Her works often explore sexuality, taste and touch through the depiction of various fruits and foods, playing with the viewer’s senses and engaging their imagination with a subtle humour. She uses bright, indulgent colours to paint her cropped and intimate works and celebrates the beauty in potentially overlooked moments and areas of merging and uncontrollable colour. Holly lives and works in London, UK.

About the Artwork

I Dreamt you killed My Onions is a window into an imagined moment between a couple. At first glance the figure looks incredibly sad but only on reading the title do we see how silly the situation is. I wanted this work to be an insight into the humorous and human interactions in relationships.
