Chris Holman

Chris grew up in Winscombe and after Art School in Bath and Norwich, has lived and taught in Weston for many years.
Whilst based loosely on locations in Somerset, Chris’s semi-imagined scenes are intended as a retreat into the fiction of a nostalgic rural idyll: a landscape of shadows; at dusk or in the cool morning light in which we might call to mind, birdsong or the wind rustling the leaves on a tree.
Such a world is transient and insubstantial and so, in seeking to capture it, the specifics of a scene give way to shape, colour and pattern that remain in the mind’s eye after the detail has faded from memory.
