About Blindfold - Harry Holland has created over several decades a body of work which is easily recognizable. His treatment of light and form occupies a specific space between evidence and mystery. Both rational and irrational elements are crucial for understanding the underlying meaning. Underlying his mastery of the painting technique, often taken as the only identification of the work, is a subversive attitude created through imbued relations between people and objects. Ordinary people are engaged in rituals that transforms reality into hidden narrative implications. This exhibition is an invitation to enter this world from behind the blindfold of our preconceptions.
Harry Holland was born in Glasgow in 1941. He trained at St. Martin's School of Art from 1965-69.
