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.
