loop Gallery is pleased to announce Zoology, a new exhibition by David Holt.
Holt’s Zoology paintings of living, extinct, and imaginary animals are part of an ongoing series of works inspired by natural history museum displays and illustrated atlases. Monkeys, fish, dogs, cats, birds, raccoons and even dinosaurs and mollusks are playfully depicted in painterly, grid-like arrangements that invite morphological comparisons.
A Toronto-based painter whose works are in private collections in the USA and Canada, Holt has been a recipient of a painting grant from the Ludwig Vogelstein Foundation and an artist’s residency at the Ragdale Foundation. He taught for many years at Marymount College (later of Fordham University) in Tarrytown, New York, and since 2005 he has lived and worked in Toronto, teaching art at Upper Canada College.
