Let It Pour!
Holton Rower’s paintings look like landscapes, networks, neurons, and rainbows distorted through kaleidoscopes.  Last night, the artist, a grandson of Alexander Calder, celebrated his opening at the Bowery gallery The Hole with a Dior-sponsored dinner, where ever-growing piles of flower petals seemed themselves to spill out of his massive, multicolored works. Then the artist demonstrated before a rapt audience how he makes his pictures, pouring successive cups of pigment onto a wood ground. The concentric circles rippled around vials of Dior nail lacquer strategically placed to create a flower effect as the paint, inexorably moving toward and off the edges of the wood, found its way around them. As the the artist completed the painting, he announced, the last five colors replicated tones from Dior’s new line. Very polished!
