Rachel Howard's Human Shrapnel

Press release: Other Criteria launch Rachel Howard’s ‘Human Shrapnel’ series

Thursday 23 September marks the launch of Rachel Howard’s first solo drawing show, ‘Human Shrapnel’, featuring a series of oil drawings on paper. Created by the artist for Other Criteria, these new works will be exhibited in their New Bond Street shop in London until 23 October.

The title for the series stems from Howard’s personal reaction to the violent terrorist attacks on London in 2005, ‘It was after the 7/7 bombings in London that these two words penetrated my psyche’.

Working with her sister as her muse and meticulously scouring source material from the internet and newspapers, Howard deals with images and symbols relating to conflict and the human body. Each oil drawing emanates both starkness and raw emotion, revealing how Howard dissected images of war by looking at the human anatomy from a different perspective; war and the body as a weapon, to inflict and be inflicted upon.
