This large, unique monotype, made with acrylic paint and mica pigment, is printed on white Habotai silk. It is stretched on wood stretcher bars, which are faintly visible through the diaphanous silk fabric. The artist used mica pigments and chromatic black mixed from colors rather than black pigment, and subtle colors are visible within the image. The scale and execution of this sublime work blur the line between painting and printmaking. Framing is recommended for this piece.


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.
