Originally from Colorado, Holly Rios is a Utah-based printmaker. Working primarily with copperplate etching and screenprinting, her work utilizes a limited color palette and merges text with image. Her content explores a variety of topics including domesticity, gender construction, gender inequities, maternal relationships, and horror. Often using appropriated imagery and collage, Rios is interested in media literacy – treating popular media as a mirror of social attitudes.
Rios received her MFA in Printmaking from the University of Utah and her BFA in Printmaking and English from Western Colorado University. She has taught Foundation Printmaking and Intaglio at the University of Utah, and currently teaches Drawing and Basic Print at Utah State University.
