British Art and Artists at Red Rag Gallery
Artist: Nick HOLLY

Born in 1968, Nick Holly grew up in St Thomas, Swansea with Kilvey Hill, the banks of the River Tawe, the docks and the ruined copper works all around him as inspiration. He studied at the Swansea School of Art and Design gaining his first solo exhibition in 1998. His earlier work depicted scenes of traditional Welsh life and landscapes but has, more recently, started to incorporate people into his paintings. These convey the life of the communities in which he lives. With his interest in capturing scenes of gritty Welsh life, Nick Holly has become known as a chronicler of urban life in post-industrial Wales. Reviewers have compared his work to L.S.Lowry.

As well as figuring personal memories, Nick's paintings have moved to encompass images from the last century and his urban landscapes have extended to include scenes from New York and Paris. Nick Holly's palette consists mainly of blues and greys with small touches of red that draw the viewer's eye into the painting. Other signal elements that occur in his work and are now familiar to those who know his work are things such as yellow taxis, fire hydrants, the Chrysler building and the Brooklyn Bridge.

Nick Holly sees his work as simple and unpretentious and do not hold any deep, hidden message. He will find something that is interesting, no matter where it is in the world, and will capture it in his paintings, be it children at play to bustling street scenes. Two simple dogs - a black labrador cross and a black Highland terrier have also made his way regularly into his paintings and have become a well known trademark of Nick's.

As well as exhibiting at Red Rag Gallery, Nick Holly has exhibited widely throughout England and Wales.

This is the Seascape art page from Red Rag British Art Gallery featuring the best in contemporary British art. Throughout the year Red Rag features British art from artists who specialise in creating fine Seascape paintings. Today is no exception you will find Red Rag British Art Gallery has an extensive collection of Seascape art and paintings by leading contemporary artists.

Human beings have always had an intimate relationship with the water. Given the amount of the earth’s surface which is covered in water and the often unpredictable and life-changing nature of the sea, it is little wonder that seascapes have been such a popular subject for so long and no surprise that seascape paintings have an important place in the history of art.

Seascape paintings have a long history in both the Eastern and Western worlds.The walls of homes have been adorned with seascape paintings since the art of the secular painting first began to overtake religious works in numbers and importance.

As a country with an extensive coastline, paintings of seascapes have always had a special attraction to British artists. All the seascape paintings at Red Rag showcase the talent of British painters and their ability to depict changing light on water and rapidly altering climatic conditions. Many of the British artists who have painted these seascape paintings are also talented landscape painters, or worked in other genres as well as seascapes, such as still life or portraiture.
