PAINTING WITH PAPER:
TEXTURAL ABSTRACTIONS
BY WILL HOLUB

Instead of using paper as a mere support for mark-making, Will Holub makes paper itself the primary marking device in his textural abstract paintings. Precisely arraying hand-torn, individually painted paper fragments on painted stretched canvas or linen, he then seals this low-relief, 3-D material under transparent acrylic-polymer skins. Enhancing, preserving and protecting such an inherently fragile, plant-based material inspires metaphorical associations with the very human struggle to accept life’s only true certainty.
