Harry Holland, 04 Mar - 26 Mar 2011, Albemarle Gallery, London & Mar 9 - Apr 30, 2011, Mineta Fine Art, Brussels, Belgium

Harry Holland has exhibitions opening this week in both Brussels at Mineta Fine Art and at Albemarle Gallery, London.

Harry Holland is widely regarded as one of Britain's best craftsmen, who works with uncompromising commitment and sincerity to produce art that is intense and rewarding.

His style is distinctive and immediately recognisable, something which every artist seeks. The paintings are suggestive in the sense that they imply situations, events, or relationships that are not directly expressed; this imbues them with an engaging sense of mystery.

Holland was born in Glasgow in 1941. He trained at St. Martin’s School of Art from 1965-69. Since the seventies this extraordinary classical artist has had over thirty solo exhibitions and figured in countless group exhibitions worldwide.
