13 Million Miles (Diamond) & 300 Billion Years (In The Past)
Two new silk screen prints have recently been released by Ross Holden, seeking to capture the essence of a passing moment in time. Having previously worked primarily within the photographic medium, this is a new direction for Holden in which he compresses memories into their simplest form, a single colour. Each colour represents a moment in time never to return again but still vivid in the artist’s mind and able to invoke the emotions and feelings of that particular place, person or situation. The patterns, as well as the memories, were collected on travels around the globe and the product is an intricate and precise yet jumbled effect which explores the juxtaposition of chaos and order in everyday life.
These prints are published by Eyestorm and are on sale at eyestorm.com

"Fascinated by the way familiar yet fleeting images can be made to sum up a situation, whether it be the first impressions of a tourist on visiting a new place or the way that the same few minutes of constantly-repeated TV footage come to represent a whole conflict, Holden crafts photographs into beautiful mosaics of colour and pattern to challenge and subvert the repetitive and streamlines conventions of a media age that favours presentation over content."

"Ross Holden is the 'Keyser Söze' of the Eyestorm artists. In the whole time we've been working together, which will be three years in April, I think i've met him only once, and this was at our initial meeting when i visited his studio. I'd say most of my friends, and myself included, love to see the world at any opportunity we get, but I think out of everyone i know Ross has done it the most. Having hardly been in the UK at all over the past three years, Ross has the travel bug big time - he'll be back for a week or two and then off again for the next adventure. And as an artist this passion is reflected in his work of course and as he travels around he's constantly inspired, collecting imagery for his next piece - great news for fans of his work."
