Paul Holmes spent two decades as a director in film and television before redirecting his practice towards visual art.


By manipulating the duration and rhythm of the moving image, his work exposes structures of movement and meaning that are unseen in standard time frames.


He uses still images, film, graphics and sound to transform our understanding of modes of expression and viewing, of narrative and performance.


Paul also teaches at the School of Arts and Creative Industries, Edinburgh Napier University.
