This is from an on-going project profiling artists. While many are visual artists, I also pull in others from differing creative fields - musicians, wood-workers, writers, tailors, etc. The project is rooted in portraiture, but I'm equally as interested in profiling and documenting the artistic and tactile processes behind the work.
This is Benjamin Howard. In his words -
"My work stems from a form of automatism. Finding form by pairing graphic line with color and shape has always been what has interested me. Mostly, I start without much knowledge of where the painting will go. As much as I influence the process, it’s important that I let the materials find their own identity."
