Roger Holtom uses an unorthodox mixture of oils, acrylics, household paints and varnishes to create an exciting and very personal portfolio of effects. His work is both visually and physically arresting.
Holtom manipulates his chosen medium to create abstract paintings full of wonder and awe. Are we looking into the depths of a dormant volcano or into the night sky? However the viewer responds to his work there is always a desire to see more. The tactility of the surface of Holtom’s work brings each painting closer to the individual. We are invited to experience each painting not just with our eyes but with our whole body.
“I have always been interested in the parallels between the various artistic disciplines and a personal exploration into the visual arts has proved to be a refreshing complement to a formal musical education.”
