Stuart Holland‘s stirring charcoal drawings and watercolor works packed Arch Enemy Arts this month in a show titled “Elsew(here).” The Idaho artist crafts quiet, cerebral scenes, each its own introspective and metaphysical exploration. The show ends on June 1.
In Stuart Holland‘s charcoal drawings, reality is questioned through massive architecture and solitary figures. There’s both a cerebral and magical quality to these scenes, vague in its ties to actual reality. The gray values in his drawings, whether rendering abstract or geometric forms, add to their psychological nature.
