Myriam Holme Biography

Myriam Holme is a German artist whose sculptural paintings and installations investigate materiality and texture. Her interest in chemical interaction sits between the scientific and the aesthetic, refusing painting as a fixed medium.

Life

Born in Mannheim, Germany, Holme originally studied at the State Academy of Fine Arts in Karlsruhe. Having studied under the German painter Andreas Slominski, whose diverse, conceptual practice often takes the form of large-scale installations, Holme went on to undertake her Master's study with him in 2002.

Since then, she has held teaching positions at her alma mater, the Academy of Fine Arts Munich, the Mainz University of Applied Sciences, and the Dusseldorf Art Academy.

Artworks

Holme's interest in material interaction has led her to work with a wide variety of substances, ranging from the domestic to the industrial. Ranging from varnish, copper, and aluminium to more commonplace materials like paper, soap, and ink, Holme's materials become transformed through alchemical reactions that could place many of her installations in a science fiction narrative.

Her 2017 work lomnambule uses rust, plastic foil, wood and other materials to confiscate the boundaries between the natural and man-made, fusing them into a futuristic singularity that challenges the recognisable form of familiar materials.

The variety of textures produced by these reactions often move Holme's materials from the two-dimensional plane into sculptural presentations that take over the installation space, transitioning seamlessly from two to three dimensions.

Her 2020 installation Lingering Contributions sees reflective surfaces arching against wooden floorboards, set against solid gem structures and transparent film-like, rocks that match the expansive water colour works on paper pressed against circular walls.

The interplay between this dimensionality could be read as visualising the passage of time and the transformation of objects between various states of being.
