Ben Howe Excavation

Ben Howe (Australia) was born in London. Over the course of nearly two decades, he has explored the nature of consciousness, his own personal history and the incongruities of memory through his artwork in a career which has taken him to England, Germany, China and the USA. He holds a Master of Fine Art (with Distinction) from RMIT University and is the recipient of numerous grants, international residencies and fellowships. Action, isolation and refraction surface as thematic currents in the practice of an artist whose work functions as a platform for broader considerations relating to the physical and subjective self within contemporary society. Ben has developed a signature aesthetic that is at once hyper-realistic yet deeply concerned by the poetics of form and symbolism. His ambiguous and lonely works are often derived from preliminary explorations in other media, such as sculpture, photography and film; his process distorts the boundaries of the real and the perceived.
