"The Art of TIM HOWE"





About the Artist:

Howe’s works reflect his contemporary interpretation of landscapes, showcasing his unique ability to incorporate the disciplines of both Abstraction and Impressionism. There are no boundaries in nature, therefore sometimes the lines are blurred…his artistic expressions lie between the two. The result is a varied body of work that skillfully blends nature between seemingly opposing viewpoints while merging two aesthetics into one.

By incorporating dramatic use of color and texturing, Howe captures his subject matter with a unique contemporary flair. With vivid accents and lively vigorous brushstrokes Howe continues his search for new images of familiar subjects.

“I’m predisposed to thinking in terms of images as either positive or negative shapes, while isolating the most important colors. I see this as a more graphic and more contemporary way of painting. I find myself utilizing nature’s shapes and images and interpreting them on canvas in a bolder, more graphic way for maximum effect.

Howe is an ambitious painter whose unusual blending of styles attracts both the traditional and contemporary collector alike. There is never a limit his subject matter, his techniques, or his stylistic development. This philosophy, along with his aesthetic spirit, will always allow him to bring fresh interpretations and new energies to his work.

Howe is currently living and working in Napa, CA.

Gallery Show: May 17 - August 17, 2018


Franci, known for her contemporary work, sees her paintings as an exploration of beauty - in a dirty gritty grey, gleaming red, ghostly white, saturated blue. "They are an expression on the possibility for myself, for you & for the world. They are an act of love."

Belinda, know for her abstract work, has developed her style through a collision of experience, the development of surface quality and experimentation. Her paintings invite the viewer to explore and interpret through discovery of form, patterns and shapes that resonate with viewer.  Belinda    
Thai Flash, Angela Tirrell 

Angela, known for her abstract paintings and murals, incorporate elements such as sand, charcoal, insect carapaces, acupuncture needles, glass shards, papyrus and other found objects to reflect the topical concerns of the world around us. "My painting are - I hope- essays, prayers, and conduits to encourage reflection and communication about the complexities which introduce themselves during life, and often inhabit our hearts and minds."
