Exciting new Herefordshire artist Angela Holden, is starting to get great recognition with her bold use of neon. Angela uses the transformative and seductive qualities of paint to make bold, expressive paintings exploring concepts of boundary and journey.
Her interest comes from abstract forms and creating a simple, non-didactic language.
She explores colour relationships and formal elements whilst questioning visual perceptions. By embracing the intuitive, her paintings evolve from initial idea with the final destination unknown. With the making of the work helping form the subject itself, her practice becomes a unique journey of process, referencing both Process art and Abstract Expressionist colour-field painting.
Her paintings are a visual echo of my desire for organisation, using simple structures along with colour
to create a visual juxtaposition.
