“Jeremy Holmes: New Sculpture”
February 10, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
Heather Gaudio Fine Art is pleased to present “Jeremy Holmes: New Sculpture,” the first solo exhibition of the artist at the gallery. The show will open with a public reception on February 10th, 4-6pm, and will run through March 17th.
Holmes engages the viewer with beautiful abstract three-dimensional forms created out of natural wood. Using traditional wood-working techniques, he starts by soaking 12-foot long planks to make the naturally rigid material more malleable. Improvising as he works, Holmes bends, twists and coils the slabs into graceful sinewy forms, then joins them to become stunning free-standing or wall-mounted sculptures. He stains them with color or leaves them natural with a clear resin finish. On view will be new free-standing and wall-mounted sculptures in addition to a large site-specific installation. Made of white ash, this singular 200-foot structure will activate the gallery space as it hangs suspended from the ceiling and walls. Holmes has been working with wood since earning his BFA a decade ago, and has been the subject of several solo and group exhibitions here and abroad. An important part of his artistic practice consists of making large, temporary site-specific installations such as the one he will create for the exhibition. In addition to having his work featured in various publications, Holmes has been a guest lecturer and artist in residence, and has been the recipient of numerous awards.
