In fact it’s not so much observing as it is interacting. Holding’s large, mixed\\-media works, made of concise layers of fluid, lucid brushwork, hang suspended in the air, and mix with the environment’s light, offering a shape\\-shifting illusion when looked at from different perspectives, and in turn inviting the viewer to get lost within the abstract imagery.\n”}},{“type”:”html”,”data”:{“text”:”“}},{“type”:”text”,”data”:{“text”:”Holding shows his most recent works in the \”An Appeal to Heaven\” exhibit currently showing at downtown Boston’s Lot F Gallery. Holding, who is originally from Stoneham, Massachusetts, now lives in and works out of Brooklyn, and has exhibited across the world: from Hong Kong to Tokyo, form multiple galleries in new York to the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art \\(Mass MOCA\\).\n\n\”‘An Appeal to Heaven’ showcases the mastering of Holding’s signature style, which if categorized might fall within a loosely defined genre called Graffuturism,\” describes Lot F Gallery in the show’s press release. \”Graffuturism is the blending of futuristic, abstract aesthetic, with the mediums and applications that graffiti artists typically use, such as spray paint. Holding creates dynamic compositions with a careful selection of colors, textures, shapes, and light.\”\n\nThe shows opened last Friday, and will be up through the end of 2014. The public is welcome to experience the exhibition during open hours on Saturdays from 12\\-4 p.m. and by appointments. \n\n”}}]}
