Christian Holze's edition title 'Nothing New' promises nothing new and stages the comeback of one of the major works of late Hellenistic sculpture in the form of a virtual reenactment: the Borghese Fencer (Louvre, Paris). While antique sculptures oftentimes lead a shadow existence in today’s art market, they are revived virtually. Christian Holze bases his art on these objects and creates elaborate renderings of them. Like a sculptor, he models simulated space with various tools and methods, detached from physical properties. Ray tracing and Clothcollision are the new digital tools for working out reflections on surfaces and for controlling the fusion of fabrics and objects. The immaterial character paired with realistic light and gloss effects determine the visual appearance of these metamorphoses, of which one does not quite know whether they are already reality or still located in the realm of imagination. In addition to images with softly flowing draperies, Holze's work always shows the physiognomies of the two heroic sculptures merging into a liquefied, polymorphous mass in more than brotherly connotations of embrace. Holze translates the progression of the original forms into digital color surfaces without material structure into inkjet prints on canvas, which are finally glazed and partially painted over by hand with brush and paint. As printed originals, they thus assert their own inner contradiction.
 

Christian Holze lives and works in Leipzig. In his work he combines different artistic categories into hybrids: object, 3D graphics, painting and installation. The exploration and dissolution of these categories is just as essential to him as the fusion of analog and digital working practices. The marketing strategies of current technology and luxury goods corporations are as much a part of Holzes artistic fundus as the identity-forming properties of their products. Through an affirmative approach to the resulting research topics, Holz's works slip into the role of the product themselves, questioning their own artistic creation and the commodification of visual art.

Each edition is individualized by the artist himself, by dripping acrylic paint on the print. 

The frame is white glazed ayous wood with acrylic glass that has 84% UV protection. Framed dimensions are 63 cm x 43 cm; 24 3/4 x 17 in.

The 24-HOUR PHYSICAL DROP is a concept which allows artists to sell an unlimited amount of phyiscal editions within the limited timeframe of 24 hours on misa.art. Each 24-HOUR PHYSICAL DROP edition will be available for 24 hours only, then never again.

The editions are numbered randomly, i.e. the edition number is not chronologically assigned to the time of order receipt. All 24-HOUR PHYSICAL DROP prints are made to order. Each artwork will be produced and personalized specifically for each client, the artwork therefore is not eligible for return.
