25th May – 2nd June 2024 Creative Kernow

James Howe MA RCA


Colourful and lyrical abstracted landscape acrylic paintings on canvas and paper.

I have spent many years in the film industry working on feature films including cult movies such as Blade Runner and Local Hero and award wining television dramas such as β€˜Conspiracy’. Throughout my film career I continued my interest in painting, but now devote more time to it.

I consider my paintings to be objects of mood and time. I enjoy the play between the abstract and the figurative, an element not always discernible. I work instinctively sometimes manipulating the accident to maximise the element of surprise, particularly in relation to shape and colour – as the images develop from this interplay I relish the texture and fluidity of the paint. My work is executed briskly but over a long period of time, until I feel I have arrived upon an image whereby all this history is encapsulated in the moment.
