Catherine Howe: Paintings 1993-1998
Schmidt Center Gallery
February 28 - April 11, 1998
Catherine Howe paints images focusing almost exclusively on female subjects.
Her figurative paintings to date have deployed singular females emerging from
painterly grounds and more recently, young women posing in nostalgic studio
settings. Neither narrative scenes nor portraits in the traditional sense, these
images often thwart efforts to attain any particular understanding of the depicted
woman. Presented concurrently with Some WOMEN/ PRETTY girls exhibition.
