Outback and Objectificationality” brings together a series of work by Australian Contemporary Abstract artist William Holt. In his new series of abstract landscape paintings, Holt encapsulates the Australian landscape through the use of recycled materials from Outback Australia. “Outback and Objectificationality” questions the intrinsic nature of art; pushing the boundaries of what is considered “art vs. rubbish”.
William Holt has a Master of Fine Art in Painting from Monash University, alongside a broad range of experience in painting, sculpture, installation art. He is a Melbourne based artist who has exhibited extensively with a long list of collectors around Australia and internationally. William is extremely consumed in every line, texture and nuance of the canvas, as he applies his whole physical being into the act of creation. Through working outside, he maintains a close connection with the materials, as the sun and wind influence all parts of his process. William recycles everything from paints to previous works, enhancing the maximum sculptural energy. The material, physical and tactile nature of the canvas is a spontaneous enjoyment for William, as the dynamic paint application is almost an inspired whirlwind of pure life-force and vitality.
