About Rene Holm's work
Rene Holm's work is grounded in figuration. Figurative art can simply be understood as art that involves strong references to the real world, or to the human figure. Often considered as the polar opposite of Abstraction, figurative art can nonetheless remain incredibly stimulating and ground-breaking, since it includes a significant number of approaches to represent the chosen object or figure. The variety of style in figurative art is immense, and spans across Paul Cézanne’s bathers to Jean-Michel Basquiat’s neo-expressionist paintings.

Historical Context of Denmark
As the southernmost of the Scandinavian countries, Denmark has often been very influenced by the Germanic culture of Northern Europe, that borders its southern frontiers. This sensibility is often mixed with the Nordic traits of restraint and melancholy in its arts. Towards the end of the nineteenth century, and in the earlier part of the twentieth, Denmark originated a key painter of Post-Impressionism, Vilhelm Hammershøi. Noted for his wistful and extremely scarce interiors, Hammershøi's reputation was founded on his ethereal depictions of light and shadow in modest, elegant interiors, most often his own residence. In the later twentieth century, Denmark was a major country in the CoBrA movement of Expressionist painting, where the naming convention was derived from the cities of the founding members - the Co standing for Copenhagen on behalf of Danish artist Asger Jorn. Established in 1949, CoBrA's vivid colours and vibrant childlike figures became both a scandal and sensation. Other prominent modern and Danish artists include Per Kirkeby, Olafur Eliasson, Danh Vō, Sergej Jensen and Tal R.
