““Fred Holle (pronounced: Holly) Artist’s Statement I’m a figural artist of “Romantic” persuasion. I’m also a painter/printmaker who’s aware that drawing is the genesis of all of my work. I constantly draw from models, partly for the great pleasure it affords but, primarily, to maintain perceptual sensitivity and to obtain fresh data to fill a reservoir of images that may be tapped, when needed, for my paintings and prints. I want to stress, however, that the use of this stored information is strictly a subconscious act as regards the works from my imagination. My primary “vehicle” of expression over the years has been an ongoing Series of paintings and prints titled “GNOMEGAME”. It’s guiding CONCEPT relates to the revelation and personification of universal human attitudes ranging from foibles to the darker edges of human nature. My awareness of the particular “attitude” being manifested on the picture plane usually crystallizes as the work unfolds. That is, I don’t preconceive. Perhaps this approach is the result of my early years as an Abstract-Expressionist. I have the greatest faith in intuition and the truth it generates.” Posted 2 days ago”
