  • Biography
    "Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is symbolic as well as actual beauty in the migration of the birds, the ebb and flow of the tides, the folded bud ready for the spring. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature ... the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after the winter."
    Rachel Carson

    London Art critic and curator Aindrea Emelife recently wrote about Lilia's painting:
    "The ethereal beauty of Lillia's fantastical gardenscapes is mixed with a loose Impressionist technique, as brush marks seem to fall off the canvas. Allow earthly splendour to fill the room with dreamy romance and a distinct Japanese calligraphic influence."

    In her recent essay "Spoils of Post Cataclysm", Art writer Esther Hipponax wrote:
    "Lilia Orlova-Holmes does not seek to represent nature but to embody and become it. Against the tradition which places man against and above nature, an outsider peering in, Lilia emphasises our essential place in nature as a process of movement and change. To separate man from this world, we have elevated ourselves above plants, animals, and the non-human. Thus, in representing plant life, we alienate ourselves from it. Lilia rejects this dictate and affirms our common nature: a brutal surge of life which is only growth, growth alone. Her craft is thus not representation but becoming: Lilia embodies the process of nature and grows in her craft as a plant does in itself."

    A selection of paintings is currently available via Grant Ford Art Advisory services and can be vied at the exhibition in Carden Park Hotel, Chesher. UK.


    Lilia Orlova-Holmes is the number 1 bestselling Artfinder artist of 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022 and Saatchi Art's bestselling artist of 2023.

    Her paintings are in many collections around the world.
    Her recent work reflects on the artist's progression to looser and freer brushwork, expressing her own emotive intuition.
    While these pieces are anchored in figurations, they are no representational or observational but are explorations of feeling awoken by the artist's search for inner meaning.
    Lilia finds her inspiration in the way nature creates endless variety without judgment on what should or should not be.
    The viewers are invited to step into the artwork and experience the emotion awoken in them. 


    A selection of paintings is available to view at the John Davies Gallery.
    Established for over 40 years, the John Davies Gallery has a history of handling both fine 19th & 20th Century paintings and staging contemporary exhibitions.

    "Lilia combines three outstanding qualities in her technique that
    gives her paintings such strong appeal, namely, spontaneity,
    innate compositional feel and a resonant, yet classic palette.
    The spontaneity imbues her subjects with great movement, as though
    an observer's momentary glimpse is arrested when walking past
    that bunch of flowers or that apple tree. Her compositional skill
    help this transitory feel, a lack of formality which she combines
    with a lightness of touch that is so arresting, wonderful in its
    expressive gestural mark-making. Then, her palette - luxurious,
    true, generous and positively infectious. I find her paintings
    powerfully evocative of turn of the 19th to 20th Century
    Impressionist works, possessing a truly engaging feeling, while also being delightfully fresh and contemporary."

Biography

"Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is symbolic as well as actual beauty in the migration of the birds, the ebb and flow of the tides, the folded bud ready for the spring. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature ... the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after the winter."
Rachel Carson

London Art critic and curator Aindrea Emelife recently wrote about Lilia's painting:
"The ethereal beauty of Lillia's fantastical gardenscapes is mixed with a loose Impressionist technique, as brush marks seem to fall off the canvas. Allow earthly splendour to fill the room with dreamy romance and a distinct Japanese calligraphic influence."
