pouring paint

The world is flocking to London for the Summer Olympics, and I wonder how many will wander away from the athletes to discover art? Those who find the Shizaru Gallery in Mayfair will find the work of Holton Rower.

Pouring container after container of paint, Rower creates bold and wild masses of color.

Several hundred cups of acrylic paint are lined up and waiting before each “pour” begins.  The paints are poured one by one over specially constructed platforms.  Each pour consists of up to 50 gallons of paint.

The paints used vary in texture, creating different rates of flow and dry.  Some are infused with reflective elements.  Cost for these immense paintings can range from $20,000 to $55,000.
