Garth William Howells is an artist living and working in Naarm/Melbourne. Howells approaches his work through responses to particular memories and emotions, using the often-blurry vision of memory as a starting point. Howells explores and examines feelings and ideas that relate to the formation of memory and free association. Seeking to create the experience of an unfolding, intensified and extended moment within a painting, equivalent to some of the heightened recollections we might experience through emotions associated with memory. From feeling hopelessly lost to ecstatically in love, his art is a cross-section of the universal life journey. Howells keeps elements open to interpretation through an inconsistent approach to painting. Working in the medium of painting, Howells graduated from RMIT University, Melbourne with 1st Class Honours. In 2018, Howells exhibited at MONA FOMA and was a finalist in the FortyFive Downstairs Emerging Artist award.
