Artist Background

Anson Holzer began his study of ink-work with calligraphy in Taipei at Wen Hwa University in 1997, completed his BA degree in the Arts at the University of Pennsylvania in 2001, and his MA in Buddhist Studies in 2012 from the University of Kelaniya in Sri Lanka.  His large works have been shown and sold throughout the United States and abroad. Since 2006, he has sold more than 275 large canvas works.

His work is often associated with the Color Field movement, Minimalist art and geometric abstraction.  His palette is tightly controlled and exhibits a very precise use of color, contrasting monochromatic textural backgrounds against precise and often explosive foreground elements, which are strongly symbolic of themes that lie within mankind’s common search for spiritual knowledge and truth.

Created primarily with charcoal and inks, Holzer's works are designed to encourage an ambient environment.  Uncomplicated in concept, yet elaborate in design, they bridge the worlds of real and abstract.  Anson's techniques of canvas-working are self-taught, and are very unique.  Collectors will not find works by other artists that are created in these innovative ways.

All works are created with archival-quality media, and are UV-protected – guaranteed to last.  All canvases are fully signed, labeled and dated.  All canvases are gallery-wrapped (1.5 inch or wider, sans visible staples; no immediate need for framing).
