Luminous Space: Paintings by Tom Holland
Featuring abstract metal work by Bay Area artist Tom Holland. Holland merges sculpture and painting to create freestanding sculptural forms and wall hangings. His unique style utilizes simple materials like fiberglass and aluminum and a lustrous application of epoxy paint to achieve depth, light, reflection and shadow — the thin edges becoming a part of the space it occupies.
Holland is a former teaching colleague of Richard Diebenkorn. Tom Holland’s long-standing relationship with the Richmond Art Center started in 1960 when he began teaching studio classes and in 1966 we mounted his first solo exhibition. Most recently his work was included in our 75th Anniversary exhibition. Tom Holland’s work has been shown at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Guggenheim Museum, Whitney Museum, Los Angeles County Museum, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Walker Art Center in Minneapolis and in the Chicago Art Institute.
