ROSS HOLDEN | SMALL INTERLOCKING PANELS | NEW PAINTINGS
October 5th 2018
A little more than a year ago, British artist Ross Holden released the first of a new series of work which during the year has resulted in two incredible screenprints and eighteen painted panels. Today we present nine small panels, which form the concluding part of his initial interlocking panels. Where Holden’s previous practice as a photographer had a focus on geometrical mosaics compiled from photos from his many trips around the world, the artist has since developed his creative route further and now compressing each observation into artwork containing only the most memorable colours; A practice Holden had been keen on developing for several years.

NEWS FROM EYESTORM
The new artistic path for Holden started in the spring of 2017, where we met up with him to talk about his thoughts and ideas for the new work. From travelling on the Silk Road many years ago he had endless wonderful memories - and being a photographer, also hundreds of photographs. During the summer his ideas started to form into what we see today as a very promising new creative route, where Holden narrows down a memory or photograph into a tiny moment in time and compressing it into a few pure colours.

In September 2017, we released 13 Million Miles (Diamond), a 30-colour screenprint representing memories from his many of his memories from the journey along the Silk Road. The title of the first print edition became almost representative of Holden’s new journey; At a distance of 13 million miles from Earth the gravitational pull ends and what is left is only distant physical “evidence” of Earth’s existence. Holden sees memories in a similar way, where time erodes and distort our memories - and only leaves a recollection of a colour, a smell or a sound. The impressive print edition was followed by another astonishing 26-colour screenprint titled 300 Billion Years (In the past) which was released in February.

Holden realised that painting would be natural progression of his screenprints and with the release of a series of nine painted panels in July he elevated his new practice into what we believe has an interesting potential for his future work. During the summer of 2018 he created eighteen panels, nine large and nine small. The Small Interlocking Panels released today are the final nine paintings in this first series of work. Originally Holden wanted the small panels to available as individual pieces, just as the larger panels, which could be joined again in the future. After some consideration, we believe that the nine panels look spectacular as a set and breaking them up would take something away from the entirety.

Each of the small panels represent a memory and the title represent what was important to Holden in that specific moment in time. In Holden’s own words “In a way this is what I am trying to do, I crush the world around down in to cryptic abstract planes of colour and then blow it up again. Although these images are produced on panels a certain size, they also could be vectors with infinite size” . In ‘The Angle of a Wall (23:10:37)’, which is the small version of the panel The Angle Between Two Walls (12:53:25), Holden challenges the viewer to look at his work more as abstract cubism and perhaps see themes which were unexplored. Crossing the border from geometrical art into abstract cubism brings an additional dimension to Ross Holden’s work and a route which we hope he will explore further in the future.

In the panel ‘Three Million Prizes (03:05:24)’ he plays with the colours from a discarded lottery scratch card, where colours are used to trick buyers to play, and in ‘Embassy No. 6 (23:17:00)’ it was a dog-end in the dirt of the mountains in Kyrgyzstan. Other panels have titles such as ‘Natural Nature Reserve (23:23:44)’, ‘Observation Monitor (03:09:11)’, ‘Sky Beam (05:45:15)’ or ‘The Island of Manahatouh (02:45:53)’.

Each of Holden’s eighteen panels contains a timestamp in the title ”It is the exact time of day I was within this moment. I get these numbers as they are stored in the information of a photograph on your camera so they are precise in some respect, although a bit like 13 Million Miles (Diamond) and 300 Billion Years (In The Past) the numbers can also be perceived as arbitrary. Like points in an infinity.

As with past memories, which often come to our mind in random order, Holden never wanted the panels to be shown in a certain order and he created all panels in a way whereby they are interconnecting regardless of their size. The artist likes the thought that a certain randomness will apply to any combination when displayed by collectors of his work in their homes.

The piece “Small Interlocking Panels” is available from today and you can read more about Ross Holden and see his available work on his artist page here.

Danish artist Henrik Simonsen is well known for his abstract and colourful work of the natural elements. Often inspired by childhood memories, sketches done over several years and from travelling around the world, Simonsen creates intriguing landscapes which fascinates collectors all over the world. This week we visited Simonsen in his studio in Kreuzberg, the very creative part of the former East Berlin and today known as a hotspot for artists. On a warm and partly sunny summer day our conversation covered Simonsen’s passion for his art, life philosophies and the importance of having a long perspective.

Best known for his metal sculptures of balloon dogs and everyday objects, Jeff Koons takes industrially-made articles, strips them of their practical use and re-presents them as art icons. He plays with themes of banality, mass-appeal and commerce with arguably greater showmanship, and on a grander scale, than any artist before him.
