May 2019 update My work was represented at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2018 with my Grayson Perry portrait which was shown also on TV on the BBC related feature programme. My ‘Portrait’ period has now come to end for the time being and I’m now in the process of a change to a more ‘Abstract’ form of painting and a new series titled ‘Mindset’ which are about mental health. I could not really explore the topic through the ‘portrait’ as I couldn’t convey what I wanted to but Abstract gives me the opportunity to develop a language through colour. Both my parents suffered with mental health issues and although both conditions were not what you would consider serious, they have left that slight undercurrent of worry that I may too suffer in the future so life for me is often absorbed by self-awareness. I live about an hour from Crosby beach and I love living close to the sea. The thing about Crosby is that it is the location where ‘Anthony Gormley’s - Another Place’ statue figures which consists of a 100 human cast iron figures placed all around the beach and all looking out to sea. It’s quite moving to see all figures and they seem to be seeing something much more that just the sea and sky before them. If you have ever at any stage of your life felt like you are in a dark place then staring out to a calm sea whilst on a quiet secluded beach where there are few other distractions can have a stark effect on you. It’s as though you can feel your negative emotions and feelings through the depths of the water beyond you and yet you can also see the horizon beyond and the line between. For me this ‘sea, horizon line and sky represent my mindset. I want to be able to get from the negative to that hope horizon line and see beyond to a more positive place. My mindset paintings represent these thoughts. Thanks for looking at my profile Rodney © 2019 Rodney Holt. All artists rights reserved.
