Supreme Fiction: Monotypes and Mylar Paintings by Catherine Howe opens with an Artist’s Reception on July 3, 5-8pm at Cross Contemporary Art, Saugerties and runs through July 27th, 2015.
Inspired by the luscious paintings of the Baroque era, Catherine Howe’s riotous compositions bring still lifes and botanicals into the 21st century. Her exuberantly expressive brushwork and attention to surface create vibrant works out of uniquely contemporary materials such as carborundum grit and polyester. The luminous results resist being categorized as solely, drawings, paintings, or prints. David Ebony writes “Howe’s still lifes…are anything but still. The images seem to be imploding or exploding, in a constant state of flux.” Michele C. Cone says about Ms. Howe: “Howe’s evocative paintings are not about still life per se, but about the naming of things transposed into paint, and the magical interaction between medium, memory and perception.” Supreme Fiction: Monotypes & Mylar Paintings by Catherine Howe opens July 3-26.
