Rachel Howard (b. Easington, 1969)
Lives/Works in London, UK
Howard graduated from Goldsmiths College in 1991. Her works are like psychological snares: they capture an essence of life that seldom materialises in painting. Her figurative works combine the simple elegance of drawing with the complex expressive qualities of painting.
I am delighted to be working with Lauren and Alix again, especially since the given subject matter resonates with my work be it abstract or figurative. I chose a pregnant woman, fecund, legs open, bump heaving, a private moment - the gravity of being with child and imminent birth, both a celebration of life and the beauty of women.
