Mike Weiss Gallery is pleased to present Heavy Painting, the third solo exhibition by Thrush Holmes with the gallery. Using diverse materials, which range from oil paint to neon to driveway sealer, to depict a variety of subject matter, Holmes brazenly undermines exclusionary high art motifs, presenting instead a fresh, honest reduction of form and process that unsparingly unveils the slapdash hand of the 35-year-old Canadian artist. The result is a psychedelic exhibition with a varying tempo – one that oscillates between brutish splatters of paint, poetic smears of color, and sophisticated glimmers of neon.
A fully illustrated catalogue will accompany the exhibition. For more information about the show, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
