william holt | abstracts


At first the viewer is caught by the dynamic paint application as if in a whirlwind of pure life-force and vitality. Captured by the continuous passionate flow as rich layers of paint vary between dense dark zones and fine transparency.

This distinctive and original way of seeing broadens the Universal language of Abstract art with new visions of the present moment at the same time bringing with it a instinct for archetypal structures of humanity.

This wide expanse combines both a conscious and conceptual spontaneous approach within these enigmatic and tranquil sometimes challenging themes. These paintings contain the overriding presence of immediacy and objectivity required in this prolific approach.

Unintentional parallels hint of deeply felt connection as with aerial map like quality of unconscious and actual moving landscapes.

one hundredth gallery is proud to be working with William Holt.
