About

BILLY, 1975, epoxy painting on riveted fiberglass and aluminum, titled signed and dated verso . Gallery label from Obelisk Gallery, Boston, MA Tom Holland (born 1936 in Seattle, Washington, United States) is an American visual artist. Holland is known for creating a style of art that may use fiberglass (or fibreglass), aluminum (or aluminium), epoxy paint, plywood, beads, oil paint, palette knives, marble, copper, paper, and clay. For clay he uses watercolor, acrylic urethane, and ceramic glazes.[ Holland began his formal art education at the University of California at Berkeley, where he was influenced by David Park who was a member of the art faculty. Other artists, among them Richard Diebenkorn and Elmer Bischoff, working at this time in Berkeley, contributed to the development of Holland's artistic and personal style as a young student. Following his time at Cal, he travelled to Santiago, Chile, as a Fulbright Grant recipient. Contemporary practice His beginning as a painter was labeled "funky". It wasn't until Holland began to work with aluminum that he achieved critical acclaim. His work has been described as taking inspiration from Cubism, Futurism, and Constructivism, and he has been called one of California's most important contemporary artists and was featured in Art in the San Francisco Bay Area, 1945–1980: An Illustrated History. Holland works primarily with fiberglass and aluminum to create free-standing and wall installations, a style that has been said to encompass Abstract Expressionism. He creates his art by riveting metal to the fiberglass or aluminum, then using epoxy paint to add other elements to the piece which add depth, light, and color. His work has been labeled exhilarating[3] and visually challenging, playing games and distorting the three-dimensional space. Holland is represented by Bivins Gallery in Dallas, Texas.
