Catherine Howe’s “Wallflower” monotypes are made using acrylic inks on black, acid free Curious Metallics 300 gsm. paper. The surface of the paper imparts a subtle shimmer which contrasts interestingly with the matte finish of the inks. As with much of Howe’s work, the wildly gestural image of a flower hovers on the edge of complete abstraction.


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.
