Naturally, we at AT give high importance to the home, from the smallest closet hook to the massive home renovation. Holly Farrell's paintings — still-lifes of ordinary house items with a vintage vibe — give similar reverence to the domestic, highlighting the subtle beauty that draws us to the things of the home...

We're wowed by the power of her realism and choice of understated subjects:
