Interested in documenting fleeting and happenstance moments from everyday life, Sam Holt’s latest body of work, At the intersection of where a memory meets a feeling, presents a series of abstracted and romanticized images which bring to life the feelings and emotional undercurrents which define our experience of nostalgia and memory.
A series of observational memories in transit, reminisced now into reality, Holt’s new works have been photographically captured, digitally massaged on the iPad, printed on linen and reworked with a layer of expressive painterly gestures.
Mimicking the way memories are naturally stretched and abstracted over time, the process of mining these seemingly insignificant personal moments allows Holt to translate an intangible experience into the creation of a new emotionally charged artwork.
The exhibition can be viewed online on the Artereal Gallery Online Exhibitions portal. View exhibition here from 11 July.
