About the Art

Mr. Holland's work is conceptually grounded in literary and art-historical sources, with consistent emphasis on the formal qualities of atmosphere, collage and slight geometries. In this current series,  he is using linear depictions of constellations associated with the modern Zodiac as the geometrical foundation of each piece. While he is not beholden to the constellation outside of its initial placement – it may become obliterated or it may maintain its central focus, depending on the formal development of a work. The constellation is a conceptual underpinning as well as an aesthetic device. Edward states " I am drawn to the Zodiac and, by extension, its related mythologies as obsolete systems for delivering information and meaning. There is a logical parallel to the practice of painting, but I am not making these works ironically or with malice. I believe in the romance of painting and its ability to create meaning, whether directly or openly, empirically or emotionally. My work celebrates this."
