Jeremy Holmes

Providing a counter aesthetic to the photographs and paintings displayed in the show are wood sculptures created by Jeremy Holmes.  Soaking 20-foot planks of natural wood in water and using traditional woodworking techniques, Holmes bends, twists and joins the rigid material to form stunning ribbons and swirls that are free-standing or mounted to the walls. Working with an array of wood species, stains and palettes, his sculptures, or three-dimensional line drawings, can vary in tonality and feel.  They can be more grounded in nature and the familiar, or can have more intense and eye-popping modernist saturations. Holme’s spatial creations can also occupy entire rooms in site-specific work.  An emerging artist whose career has been on the rise since he earned his BFA in sculpture, Holmes has exhibited in the United States, Europe and Asia .
