Johns story

The artworks of John Holt emanate from an abiding interest in the flow of things in the material and natural worlds, originating from a personal interest in the creative process which is found most evidently in nature and also in the imaginings of us all.

He defines his artwork as "flow art", an art that springs from the natural process of creativity, through the progression of human making.

A journey

Always interested in the potential for art to heal, transform and clarify life journeys, his work directs us in a spontaneous process towards outcomes grounded in nature as the flow of water, the stratification of rocks and the interplay of clouds.
