holton rower: pour

holton rower’s ‘pour’ series is created by dripping paint onto three-dimensional objects

in his ‘pour‘ series, new york multimedia artist holton rower directs and collaborates with the forces of nature, leaving an element of the artistic process to the effects of gravity.

in the studio, rower orchestrates the pouring of successive layers of coloured paint onto three-dimensional objects. the designs that result are in part the effect of careful colour selection, timing, and pouring, and in part the less predictable result of gravity and surface forces on the materials.
