Colin Holt: a survey will showcase paintings and posters from a career in the Northern Territory spanning almost 40 years in which time he has forged a large following of local devotees. Often labelled as an abstract expressionist, Holt creates layered compositions of paint that reference memory as a visual language. Holt’s art is not limited to abstraction. He is adept at screenprinting and large-format portraiture. Posters advertising music gigs and Top End tourism will feature alongside a series of cheeky portraits created in 2008 and entitled 30 years of Chief Ministers, works that convey Holt’s keen and cynical interest in local politics.

Many works of art in the exhibition are on loan from private collections in Darwin, Alice Springs and Yirrkala as well as a number of works in the CDU Art Collection. 

Colin Holt: a survey is curated by Kellie Joswig, Acting Curator CDU Art Collection and Art Gallery. The exhibition opens to the public on Thursday 19 October until 17 February 2018, and the CDU Art Gallery open Wednesday to Friday, 10am-4pm and Saturdays 10am-2pm.
