Roger Holtom’s paintings awaken our senses. The physicality of the artist is present in the artwork itself, breathing life and vigour into the materials that he uses. Surface textures, compositional rhythms and tonal depths combine resulting in paintings that resonate with a sense of our shared experience of humanity.

About

In his current body of work, Holtom has sought to manifest a sense of the ephemeral nature of the subconscious through the principles of Jazz improvisation. In much the same way that a great Jazz musician reinvents that musical genre, ensuring that it is never allowed to stagnate, so too Holtom's work embodies a quality which challenges any argument regarding the obsolescence of painting. Standing before his paintings it is impossible to remain unmoved by their profound depths and intriguing surfaces. Roger Holtom's work not only proves that the practice of painting is still very much alive, but gives us a sense that it conceivably may have just been reinvented.

Musical influences on his most recent work include the ongoing study and assimilation of the architectural beauty of J.S. Bach’s six suites for solo cello. Drawing together the various elements of his practice, this exhibition - and the live musical performance accompanying the Private View - will provide a unique opportunity to witness first hand the work of an artist at the peak of his powers.
