LAURENCE HOLDEN

Laurence Holden is best known for his mixed-media paintings, which explore the tension between the rough tactile materials of life and nature. In 1998 the Gwinnet Fine Arts Center in Duluth, Georgia, held a retrospective of these works, In the Garden of the Golden Sections 1984-1998. The natural forces of creation/destruction are a central inspiration for Holden's work, and his paintings are marked by a finely tuned balance between spontaneity and control. Holden was born in England and received a Master of Fine Arts degree from Georgia State University in Atlanta. His works have been commissioned for the IRS Southeastern Regional Service Center, Atlanta; Conference Center, University of North Florida, Jacksonville; and Carnegie Center for Peace, Washington, D.C., among others.

 

 

I hope the works will gradually reveal -- not the first time they are experienced, maybe not even the 10th time, but perhaps after the
100th -- that there is a natural rightness at the center of life's cycles, something ineffably and unalterably right and good, and that we're part of this rightness.
