Emil Holmer Manual 2012 mixed media on canvas 106" x 94.5" emilholmer.com
Holmer paints like a man possessed. He uses every possible visual technique including collage, printing, as well as a plethora of traditional painting tools including his fingers. He references Kippenberger, Oehlen, Salle as well as Guston and others of that generation. However, he ultimately comes up with his own painting vocabulary and solutions. I have to say I am impressed with his verve.
