CLOUDSCAPES: AN EXHIBITION BY DAVID J. HOLLAND
APRIL 15TH- JULY 15TH, 2017
The sky has always held a special place in my life. The same sky exists no matter where your location on Earth, and as a child I moved many times to new locations with my active military family. Wherever I was, each place had a familiar sky with familiar clouds I could watch to make me feel at home. Oklahoma is where I was born in 1959 and where I landed for good in 1977. The skies I watch here are among the most varied and entertaining to be found anywhere in the world. I relish my time spent observing developing storms. They have a timeless beauty and show an undeniable power that I work to capture in my paintings. I consider each painting a portrait of an individual storm captured at a single moment in time with accurate details that work to present its unique personality. I see storms as a blessing. They provide water, the building block of all life on Earth. They are the vehicle by which life on Earth is sustained.
