Artist Biography

Working within the "problems of abstraction" the artist often takes up a class-conscious cultural criticism through the genre of the funerary as well as processes derived from psychic automatism. Utilizing abstract compositional constructions and modest sculptural materials... the works bear witness to the condition of the inevitable. Anne Doran writes, Holmes's work is "redolent of institutional limbos and marginal lives, with shrill bottom notes of failure and fear."

Holmes mounted their first solo museum show Temporary Monument in 2013 at the Kunsthalle Bern.
