Crispin Holder


Following his studies in BA(Hons) Fine Art, Crispin worked for several years in the graphic design and print making industries. He returned full time to his first passion of painting in 2015. Crispin’s interest lies in the definition of form and application of colour theory to create intriguing and challenging compositions. His thought process is inspired by everyday visual experiences and the idiosyncratic nature of human observation. All of his work is conceived and drawn on paper before being painted by hand onto canvas or board. Particular attention is then paid to the finer details of edge definition and tonal consistency until the paintings are as flawless as can be achieved. Crispin’s paintings are process heavy, meticulously produced and extremely precise. His methods result in bold, striking images that provoke the viewer to question what they see, bringing visual pleasure and igniting individual reflection.
