Time Out Says

For the past several years, Holzer has been creating a series of paintings sourced from redacted government documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act. She bases her latest show on accounts related to the use of "enhanced interrogation" (i.e., torture) by the U.S. military and the CIA on detainees captured during the War on Terror. Heavily censored, the files feature large areas of blacked-out text, and by playing upon their abstract shapes, Holzer draws a line connecting art history to the deep state.
