Ronan Holdsworth's exhibition offers a contemplative
exploration of the evolving dialogue between old and new, as reflected in the diverse array of artworks on display.
This exhibition delves into the intersection of tradition and innovation within his artistic practice through the medium of acrylic paints and inks, on handmade paper, canvas and art board.
Drawing inspiration from the rich tapestry of human experience, his artwork serves as a visual testament to the enduring themes that resonate across generations.
Utilising acrylic paints and inks as his primary tools of
expression, he strives to capture the essence of fleeting
moments and elusive emotions. Whether through bold
brushstrokes or delicate washes, each mark on the canvas or handmade paper serves as a testament to the depth and
complexity of the human spirit.
The choice of materials, particularly handmade paper, adds an additional layer of significance to the artwork, symbolising the interconnectedness of past and present.
As a medium, handmade paper serves as a bridge between
traditional artistic techniques and contemporary sensibilities, echoing the theme of intersectionality that pervades this exhibition.
Ronan Holdsworth invites viewers to embark on a journey of introspection and discovery through his visual arts.
'A Lifetime of Lions' by Kate Jenvey
Growing up and travelling throughout East Africa as a child exposed me to the incredible wonders of the landscape and the stunning wildlife that lives and survives within its realms.
My first painting as a 5-year-old was of a lion; over my lifetime, this majestic animal has featured in much of my work as childhood inspiration has remained.
This exhibition is a collection of my drawings and paintings that span the decades, from my first painting through to my most recent, from powerful portraits to lions in their environment, each piece invites viewers to contemplate the profound connection between humans and lions, reminding us of the importance of conservation and coexistence.
Prepare to be transported on a journey through the years, where every artwork echoes a story of resilience, strength, and survival.
