Born in South Africa, Kiff Holland moved to Canada in 1975. Over the years he became recognized for his marine landscapes and luminous still-life watercolours.
Currently Kiff works almost exclusively in oil or egg tempera. Kiff loves to paint expressive, evocative figurative pieces as well as concrete subject matter, explored through abstract design. Accomplished in classical technique he does not impose boundaries upon himself; “There is always another way of interpreting, another way of seeing.”
Kiff Holland’s paintings explore his experience of light, its ability to reveal and conceal, to define and to cloud, to excite and to calm.
