Beautiful, flow-triumphant Pour Paintings by Holton Rower on show in New York

Posted by Bryony Quinn,

What is more impressive than one psychedelic spectral pour painting by Holton Rower? 19 of them. New York’s The Hole gallery presents the latest in the artist’s beautifully vivid, process-driven works that reveal the time that made them like the rings of a tree while simultaneously appearing as if a particularly chromatic work of art had melted on its plinth.

“Paint here is truly on parade,” says the gallery of the collected works. Individually they are the product of a high experimentation and pre-meditation; the properties of each cascading colour creating a singular, accumulative path that blends, moves about and pushes, vacillating form and direction and finally settling into autonomous and unexpected beauty.
