Fred Holman ~ Oil Paintings

Fred Holman

Artist’s Statement

There are two aspects of my work that continue to challenge me.  The first is creating a sense of space or the third dimension on a 
two–dimensional plane. 
As a Landscape Architect, I designed spaces in the real world.  Now I want to represent that feeling on canvas.  I have tried to accomplish this with value and color. 

The second aspect of my work is light.  Living in the Adirondacks, the overcast days are not conducive to painting light.  This continues to be a challenge that keeps me exploring new palettes and my expanding use of color as means of defining both space and light.

Fred Holman started painting in 2005.  What began as an interest in refining his drawing skills turned into a passion for exploring the joys of nature through painting.  He is a Landscape Architect and Planner by profession, using the natural environment to create beautiful, functional spaces have been part of his life for over 40 years.  

A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design‘s Painting and Drawing Certificate Program in 2007,  Fred obtained the knowledge needed to use his natural talent in his paintings.  He has explored many mediums, but today oil is his preferred medium to paint still lifes, figures and landscapes.

Fred’s studio is located on the Schroon River in Brant Lake, New York. He currently sits on the Board of Directors of the North Country Arts Center and is a member of the Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Council, the Saratoga Arts Council and the Guild of Adirondack Artists.  His work has been shown at these venues and in juried art shows throughout the Adirondack region. 
 In 2017 he has won awards at the Colonie Arts League Juried Art Exhibit (First Place) and the Cooperstown Regional Juried Art Exhibit (Mary Buckley Memorial Prize for Oil) and the Lake Placid Center for the Arts (First Place).
