Rod Holdaway

When Paths Cross

15 April - 17 May

ROD HOLDAWAY's paintings reflect the transmutable and elusive nature of social interactions in public spaces. Through their gestural intensity the figures in these works are distinguishable, yet somehow also vague and interchangeable. The built environment provides the perfect analogue for the human psyche. As the artist fragments and dissects, winds and navigates his way through familiar streetscapes and public parks their materiality is simultaneously captured and dissolved. What emerges is unique to the artist's perspective yet also reflects a commonality. These paintings encourage reflection upon the social constructs and contracts that underpin much of human behaviour in an exposed social context.
