Dan Holden

Abstract Artist
Dan Holden Intensity

I have developed my own unique style, using the materiality of rough oriented strand board (OSB) combined with layered oil paint, to convey a positive emotional energy through abstracted forms.
Inspired by the sense of artistic freedom generated by the ground breaking artists of the twentieth century, I am constantly experimenting within the material confines I have set myself.
When developing a piece, it can be a destructive process, sometimes eradicating an ordered image to emphasise layers and textures. This results in each of my artworks, having a personal intensity and physicality, that give the work a sculptural tactility.
I also use my distinctive handwriting style to communicate ideas by directly transcribing words on to his paintings. I have found this use of writing, despite its initial illegibility, has an aesthetic quality that imbues a sense of intrigue. It was one of these writing pieces that I had accepted into the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
