“Why climb’st thou not the Mount Delectable,
Which is the source and cause of every joy?” – Inferno, Canto I, The Divine Comedy
The Mount Delectable is referenced as a thematic title, depicting the artists own sources of joy residing in nature, love and harmony. A rich color palette and the integration of metallic paint stimulates a unique viewing experience in a variety of lighting situations.
Originally from Beaumont, Alberta, Mats practice is influenced by his French, Scandinavian and Canadian ancestry, resulting in a distinct style that fuses modern design knowledge with painterly intuition. Holmstrom studied at the Alberta College of Art and Design and MacEwan University. His work is in private collections across Canada.
