INTERNATIONAL STUDIO RESIDENCY ARTIST
Wall work and objekt from Unfolded Painting-series by Peter Holm (DK)
The wall work Holm will present at WEST is based on a reference to his early series of paintings titled SUNUPS and the new works UNFOLDED PAINTING. It is a simple painterly gesture of a colour range that slides and unfolds. Holm will work in a site specific manner with WEST project Space working from scratch and some sketched ideas. Holm’s work through the past 20 years evolves around solutions on painterly problems and possible solutions, utilizing anything from personal reflections to picks from architecture, design and (art)-history.

Peter Holm’s work is about an advancing of painting, sculpture and installation at once. It is dedicated to artistic development through being both historically informed and contemporaneously critical. He describes the reductive pieces (paintings, chairs, car doors, etc) as objects sensitive to colour and atmosphere. These painted objects are constructed via a precise intent and the ‘atmosphere’ of the work provides the crucial art-critical reading.
However, as his is an oeuvre further characterised by its special nature or, expression of the whimsical, the ideas of the work are formulated along the way and revised accordingly.
