My sculptures are composed with vitality and celebrate beauty.
Their structures are composed with actual or implied kinetic properties aimed at exposing energized moments between connection and disconnection, as well as between strain and serenity.
Brad Howe seeks to build on the tradition of geometric abstraction and to sustain that tradition as a living, viable discourse.
His playful mobiles, wall hangings, furniture, and freestanding sculptures combine the dynamic planar relationships and solid coloration associated with post-cubist modernism.
Their playful exuberance, however, owes more to the artistic climates of twenty-first century L.A. and São Paolo, where Howe initiated his artistic career.
The humor, inventiveness, and versatility of Howe’s artistic process are perfectly suited for private commissions.
This is evidenced in the fact that the interplay between experimentation in the studio and the unique interests or needs of his private and commercial clients serves as a vital source of inspiration.
The external parameters that this sort of interaction poses, allows Howe to approach his process from ever-changing perspectives, and it allows his stainless steel, steel, or aluminum pieces to take unpredictable directions.
