Brent Holland, Artist Using representation and abstraction, my paintings and drawings are multilayered meditations upon time, space and my sphere of existence.
Work A) I combine digital drawings, each printed on a separate sheet of clear plastic that when stacked together create a single 2.5-dimensional image. Under the surface, I layer thousands of lines and shapes. I draw lines by hand to add moments of spontaneity. All of this translates the complex spatial relationships between people, places and things familiar to me.
Des Moines Artist, Brent Holland, has produced two new bodies of work on display at Olson-Larsen Galleries opening Friday, October 7th.
His work embraces innovative techniques of painting and drawing fit for the digital era. While steeped in traditional drawing and formal abstraction, Holland chooses a new method that oftentimes eschews the brush and pen in favor of innovative tools and techniques. His unconventional methods nod to forerunners in “Experimental”, Giacometti, Gillespie, Klein, Pollack, de Kooning- artists from last century. Of his new body of work, Brent writes,
