Tom Holland (American, 1936)
A California artist, Tom Holland, does not align himself with any regional artistic group. His abstract multi-dimensional works deal with space, color and forms. Embracing many mediums and materials, Holland works with epoxy paint, fiberglass, aluminum, paper, wood and marble, transforming and constructing these materials into multi-dimensional objects: free standing structures or wall reliefs.
His wall reliefs (paintings), of aluminum sheeting, have forms, such as triangles, arcs, loops or rectangles superimposed on the basic background sheet and these shapes project out creating other dimensions. This articulation of color and form, the cut-out and painted shapes of color which project, creates an interplay between the patterns and colors of the background forming the dimensional abstraction. The wall pieces are both painterly and sculptural.
