Johannes Holt Iversen 1989年生於丹麥哥本哈根,現居荷蘭阿姆斯特丹,在2020年獲得荷蘭皇家藝術學院藝術學士學位之前,他曾做過丹麥藝術家與雕塑家艾利克・瑞特(Erik Rytter)的學徒,以及波爾・傑內斯(Poul Gernes)的助理。其作品同時使用傳統藝術手法以及人工智慧等前衛科技,探索人工、有機材料與生命體之間的張力,使觀眾對周遭的光滑現實具有存在主義式的覺知。他的作品看似抽象,但總與現實世界相關;尤其體現於高科技材料的應用,像是航空業的回射技術、工業塑膠的功能美學,以及使用於汽車製造業的鉻顏料。他從各領域得到靈感,像是拉斯科洞穴的壁畫等歷史元素,或是社會學、心理學、科學方法以及流行文化。這些素材都用於剖析和理解符號、文物和人類自我表現,例如特定物體內涵的擬人特質。

Johannes Holt Iversen (b.1989) is a Danish painter and sculptor currently located in Amsterdam, Netherlands. He is an apprentice of Danish painter and sculptor Erik Rytter (former assistant of Poul Gernes). Holt Iverson focuses on exploring the tension between artificial and organic material and life forms and works with both traditional art forms and cutting-edge technology including AI, to imbue his viewers with an existential awareness of the hyper-slick representation of reality that surrounds them. His works can be abstract at times, but are always related to the real-world counterpart, often appearing from the use of high-tech materials; used in other industries such as retroreflection technology from the aviation industry, functional aesthetics from industrial plastic construction and chrome pigments from the car manufacturing industry. Iversen draws on inspirations in various fields; whether it be historical elements, like the early depictions from the Lascaux caves or other inspirations that comes from the fields of sociology, psychology, scientific methodologies and pop culture; all with a common denominator in using, dissecting and understanding symbols, relics and human selfrepresentation; such as the anthropromorphic qualities certain objects contains.
