Andrew Holmes

Exploring the aesthetic response lies at the centre of the London based art practice of Andrew Holmes. His curiosity is around the aesthetic experience, human perception and the influence contextual information has on our judgement of art. The female figure has been depicted for over forty thousand years. This subject has a constant narrative which compels the artist to continually explore ways of expressing such a familiar form in a relevant and appropriate language.

Holmes is influenced by early figurative art, with references to Mannerism, and his interest in visual culture and contemporary painting. In examining aesthetic sensibilities, his oblique portrayal of gender, identity and discreet sensuality adopts a formalist approach, offering the possibility that the viewer, informed by cultural taste and their own world view, will respond with an intuitive judgement of his work.

Holmes has exhibited in group and solo shows in the UK, USA, international art fairs and curated open exhibitions, which include being awarded the ING Discerning Eye ‘Meynell Fenton Prize’ and inclusion in the Aesthetica Art Prize Anthology ‘Future Now’.

After gaining an Art Degree in Cornwall, Holmes worked as a freelance illustrator collaborating on commercial projects in advertising, design, TV and film. In 2008 he returned to painting and in 2020 Holmes gained a Graduate Diploma in Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art.
Andrew Holmes lives and works in London.
