modern + contemporary

Mungo Howard


29 August – 23 September 2020

I think my intention is to communicate the feeling of encountering these kinds of unconscious painterly things on urban wanderings, which is a kind of walking that has artistic precedents since the emergence of the modern city

I primarily use photography and casting as my means to incorporate these found compositions into paintings. In some ways they’re all personal souvenirs of specific places in particular moments in time, but open to being appreciated in a more formal sense as colours and textures within an abstract picture

_My fascination with archaeological fragments and inscriptions comes out in the common focus on surfaces, particularly those of walls which also nod to a history of painting embedded within architecture and running from caves to frescoes and graffiti
