This small but beautifuly produced exhibition catalog presents ten new paintings by the British artist Robert Holyhead. His work is marked by expanses of white ground left uncovered and traces of color at the canvas-edge where paint has been carefully removed from the surface. In dialog with Holyhead’s paintings is an in-depth essay by art historian Anna Lovatt. She discusses how the work is temporally bounded by the moment of the paint’s application and the point at which it begins to dry. Together, this group of paintings demonstrates the surprisingly diverse outcomes of this restricted situation.
