Night & Day
Reception Friday Evening,
April 4, 2014, 5-8 pm
As an exciting spring
season of exhibitions begin, contemporary artist
Jonathan Howard unveils his newest mixed media paintings
which represent an exploration of urban life at
different times of day. His work captures the light and
shadow, silhouette and contrast of the people who could
be any of us involved with the random dignity of our
everyday lives. There will also be new works of outlying
landscapes whose haunting solitude Howard captures so
Howard's minimalist palettes and often unexpected
perspectives define his work. As he explains, he often
keeps "to a more monochromatic color scheme to let the
line tell the story. I'm starting to draw into my
paintings more. I like the definition of the line and
the less defined areas that cause the viewer to fill in
the blanks more." In other works, he plays with "a new
kind of light" allowing for negative space and for
details to fade into white. Howard's paintings work on
many levels; they are rich in subtle collage that
informs his surfaces with added elements for viewers to
interpret as they will.
A visit to Hozho, where the gallery is located is
essential on "1st Friday" evening. Stop by and meet
Jonathan Howard. Enjoy refreshments and plenty of
exciting and engrossing art.
The exhibition runs through April 13.
