Samuel Lynne Galleries, in association with Displays Fine Art Services, is proud to announce a groundbreaking exhibition of wall-mounted and freestanding paintings of the premier internationally acclaimed artist Tom Holland. Experience the progression of Tom Holland’s illustrious half-century career and the artistic processes that propelled Holland to create the incredible body of art he continues to garner recognition for throughout the art world.

Holland’s unprecedented union of natural forms and organic fluidity juxtaposed with luminously modern textures and a pattern of geometric lines creates a collision of the native and the industrial spheres. The contrasting aluminium and vibrancy of dripping epoxy creates an arresting layered and dimensional landscape of color in a unique combination of media and techniques.

Born in Seattle, Washington, in 1936, Tom Holland attended the University of California at Berkeley before travelling to Santiago, Chile on a Fulbright Grant. Upon his return to Berkeley, he began teaching at the San Francisco Art Institute and has been on the faculty at UCLA and Berkeley in the years since. Holland is the recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts Grant and a Guggenheim Fellowship, having shown his artworks in major museums throughout the United States, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Guggenheim Museum, Whitney Museum, Los Angeles County Museum, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, and in the Chicago Art Institute. His work is also represented in the Anderson Collection as well as the Charles Schwab Company, Mayfield Fund, and Di Rosa Collections.

A process forged in decades of trial and error, Holland‘s artistic process begins by cutting thin pieces of metal and riveting them to sheets of aluminium or fibreglass. He then builds up depth, light, reflection, and color through his uniquely developed technique of epoxy paint application. In addition to these aluminium and Fiberglas paintings, Holland also works with paper, marble, and copper.

“My process develops around what I experience in nature and is strongly driven by color. Whether freestanding or wall-mounted, I consider all of my works ‘paintings’ since the epoxy color application is what truly defines each one.”
