Rachel Howard is known for her deeply expressive paintings of figures that seem to be made of shadows. Howard’s signature style is achieved by applying paint to canvas and allowing it to run downward, using a brush to form haunting images, both representational and abstract, amid the resulting striations and haze. Her preferred material is house paint; as it separates, it creates a layer of varnish that lends her works its seductive high gloss.
