This unique monotype was made in the artist’s home studio during COVID-19 quarantine. Howe’s flower garden is the inspiration here, with the composition rendered in her characteristically deft, painterly marks. The print is made with acrylic and soy-based archival inks on white Stonehenge paper.


The Artist

Catherine Howe

Catherine Howe’s prints appear to reference 17th-century still life paintings, yet are not about representation or narrative; rather, she says they are exercises in the evocative power of painting as a material. What appear to be flora, figures, and foods dissolve into abstract flurries of brush marks and fields of commingled colors when observed closely. Howe’s use of the carborundum collagraph medium mimics her approach to painting, allowing her to make rapid, deft gestures in thick gel medium.
