Thrush Holmes’ practice navigates grandiose concepts of biography, introspection, and materiality. Through his unique and unapologetic methods (his use of offensively bright neon lights and toxic driveway sealant) he seeks to elevate still lives and reclining nudes to an almost cult-like and fetishistic status. In addition, Holmes’ vibrant and colorful paintings reveal eccentric florals and audacious female silhouettes set within illuminated prose almost bursting with energy and movement on the canvas. His work evokes an entirely new visual language, a hybrid heavily indebted to old traditions on one end but somehow liberated by new contemporary modes and traditions on the other. Holmes’ work can be found in permanent collections such as The Elton John Foundation, Sony, Dreamworks, and Def Jam Records among others. Holmes’ work has been extensively exhibited in both Canada and the United States. He currently lives and works in Toronto, Canada.
