Stacy Howe is an artist that creates sanguinary assemblages on paper and nest glints of unusual growth within the banal. Using extremes of beauty, horror, and the commonplace she works to make these themes compatible if not interchangeable. Howe renders objects of material excess and polite society while tracing their links to barbarism and how we socially construct nature through etiquette.
With her recent sculptural work she is striving to reanimate life embedded within objects while addressing the terrain of spiritual research metaphysical and parapsychological. Using techniques of automatism and assemblage she constructs an event, although representational, to remove what was once a simple reading of symbols to the act of bearing witness.
