While sheltering at home during the COVID pandemic Catherine Howe developed the “Tantric Flowers” series. Experimenting with monotypes without a press in her home studio, Howe found that Habotai silk rendered a finer and more detailed impression than paper. These monotypes on silk were mounted first to a thin kozo paper and then to a heavier white paper, in the manner of Chinese scrolls.


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.
