Johan Peter Hol

As an artist, his first point of departure is an idea, not the material. His work is based on the human paradox: the individual in the group, the forlornness that you can feel even as part of that group, and the loneliness of human existence. Some related overlapping themes are the invisible things, the shadows, that which remains unsaid between members of the group and to outsiders, dystopia, and disneyfication..
In 2016 JP was invited by Galerie Terra to work in porcelain in Sanbao, China, an experience which partly resulted in the work that will be shown in this exhibition. It was a challenge for him to concentrate on just one kind of material, but it was in his blood: he added plastic, fabric, paper, paint, and metal. The exhibition consists of a series of porcelain vases, bowls, tea sets, flowers, boxes, and supporting pieces such as small tables and pedestals. They all represent the shadows and their shrines.

Participant of the “KunstKamer Delft” Spring edition 2018; a weekend show in the monumental privat house on Oude Delft 210 in Delft.
