Edward Holland Statement

My work is conceptually grounded in literary and art-historical sources, with consistent emphasis on the formal qualities of atmosphere, collage and slight geometries. In this current series, I am using linear depictions of constellations associated with the modern Zodiac as the geometrical foundation of each piece. I am not beholden to the constellation outside of its initial placement – it may become obliterated or it may maintain its central focus, depending on the formal development of a work. The constellation is a conceptual underpinning as well as an aesthetic device. I am drawn to the Zodiac and, by extension, its related mythologies as obsolete systems for delivering information and meaning. There is a logical parallel to the practice of painting, but I am not making these works ironically or with malice. I believe in the romance of painting and its ability to create meaning, whether directly or openly, empirically or emotionally. My work celebrates this.
