"A famous American actress, Laurel Holloman, has decided to devote herself to painting.

"Grace, anger forgiveness .... I want my stroke to be strong and vibrant .... I want to take the risk ..."
She was Tina, the TV producer on "The L Word" .. now she is just Laurel Holloman and her abstract expressionism.
American, a twenty-year career behind, she has chosen Art and her two daughters, as her raft and lifelines.
In "Free Falling", her personal exhibition promoted in Venice by "The Art Foundation" and open until September 29th at "Ateneo Veneto", there are 17 of her canvases.
Huge paintings..even 6x4 (meters) light and rich colours.
LEA MATTARELLA (Art critic) "She has a very personal and original language that fits perfectly into the whole tradition of American abstract expressionism".
The four elements, Water, Air, Earth and Fire... for giving life to the most extreme emotions such as anger, grief, but also for going up again and for changing life.
And Laurel is moved when she tells of her recent past .
A donation of 15,000 Euros and a percentage not defined yet on the sale of pictures, quoted even 200,000 Euros,will be used to purchase 22 heart prosthesis for young Sudanese people treated by Emergency.
