Derek Holland
a restless beauty

19th June to 4th July 2015

Derek Holland Exhibition

Jane Cope

A Devon-based artist, living and working in Exeter. 'As a book illustrator for many years the narrative picture is home ground for me and so is text. So it's not surprising that after a brief foray into abstraction many of my paintings return to this familiar territory.'

'Much of my work is oil and mixed media on canvas, and I often use newsprint rather like under-painting. It creates texture and a layer of meaning, sometimes random, sometimes deliberately chosen, that peeps through the picture we see on the surface. I see layers, ambiguity, metamorphosis, the bendy perspective as all a familiar part of our uncertain world – and a source of humour too.'
