HOLTON ROWER

Holton Rower is an artist currently living and working in New York City who attended The Putney School in Vermont. Rower’s work has been the subject of numerous solo presentations both in the U.S. and abroad, including recent exhibitions at VENUS LA in Los Angeles, The Hole in New York and Arthur Roger Gallery in New Orleans; and previously at Galerie 6 in Aurau, Switzerland, Galleria Maeght in Barcelona, Galerie Maeght in Paris, John McWhinnie at Glenn Horowitz Booksellers in New York, and Cencebaugh Contemporary in New York. His work has also been featured in group exhibitions, recently at the Dubai Moving Image Museum, as well as in numerous publications and artists books, including “Pour” (2012), “Scrap” (2010), “Jaw Law” (1999), and “Nettles” (1991), a book of photographs, poems and drawings, published by Flockophobic Press. Rower’s newer works are a powerful exploration of movement, color, and form. By working with gravity while pouring paint onto various apparatuses, his works become psychedelic snapshots of his artistic process. Past works include sculptures constructed out of a variety of non-traditional materials including human hair, dollar bills, mutated locks, and fishhooks. 

While he does work within a wide variety of meaning, all of Rower’s works examine the processes and methods of creation, and reveal the inherent vibrancy that lies within each piece.
