Added to list
Catherine Howe is a New York artist with an extensive history of exhibitions and critical success.
Lush and densely layered, Catherine Howe’s paintings overflow with sensuous color, bold gesture, and riotous energy. Drawing on seventeenth-century Dutch still lifes, unsteady piles of fruit, flowers, silver platters, and glass bowls emerge from her expressionistic brushwork, balancing abstraction and representation.
Howe has exhibited throughout the United States and Europe for over twenty years, including shows at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, MoMA PS 1 in New York, and the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo. Public installations include the New York Academy of Art and the Beekman, New York.
The many publications that have reviewed her work include Art in America, Artforum, Art Critical, The New York Times, The New Yorker, and the Los Angeles Times.
She is currently a Professor on the Graduate Painting Faculty at the New York Academy of Art, where she leads a seminar on contemporary art.
The artist works in Manhattan and a farmhouse in New York’s Hudson Valley.
