July 2018 Artist Statement : Rodney Holt I’ve been on holiday in Cornwall, UK and it’s given me time to work out my process for some new works and organise basic sketches and ideas for new works. Whilst I live on the coast, there is something extra special about Cornwall that has inspired lots of artists, some very famous ones such as Barbara Hepworth, Patrick Heron, Terry Frost and Peter Lanyon. Many claim that the light is the key to Cornwall’s attraction for artists and that’s true but I also think that being able to see the sea from an elevated location and all its vastness evokes incredible inspiration. For some time, I’ve really wanted to produce large scale works on a regular basis but have been held back by such things as being able to transport them around and being able to ship them. To get around this problem, I’m going to use good quality canvas on a roll but with stretcher bars/frame supplied separately. For a buyer, this means that they will have to assemble the frame which will be relatively straight forward but it will save them a small fortune and means I can market large scale work much more cost effectively. Expect to see new large scale work emerge later this month. In other news my work titled : ‘Grayson Perry...you should gone to Specsavers’ was featured on the BBC having been chosen for the final hang at this years 250th Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts in London. It was sold prior to the exhibition opening to the public and as a consequence there has been a marked increase in interest for my work. Whilst my early portraits are very satisfying, I feel my work as a colourist is the direction I need to take my future work. Rod © 2018 Rodney Holt. All rights reserved
