Shape-Shifter aligns Holiber’s artmaking process with his work’s visceral content. Features and colours morph and mutate through changing perspectives within these sculptural works on canvas.

my process

 

 

 

 

 

Comprising portraits, self-portraits and multi-figurative pieces, Shape-Shifter deals primarily with the human form. 

The abstract visual language always gives way to moments of figuration, constantly reminding us of the corporeal, of our own flesh and our own bodies that navigate the world. Oscillating on this boundary between the abstract and the representational, Shape-Shifter alludes not only to our physical selves, but to our interior selves. 

The explicit meaning of each piece may shift and elude us, but a raw sense of emotion can always be perceived as hands, eyes and, eventually, faces emerge from broad swathes of sculpted colour.
