The Jerwood Gallery will be showing leading British artist, Rachel Howard, for her largest solo public gallery exhibition in the UK. 

Howard distinctive, abstract paintings have been globally recognised and are held in many prestigious international art collections. The artist was born in County Durham and graduated from Goldsmiths College, London, in 1991. She was awarded the Princes Trust Award in 1992 to support her art practice, was shortlisted for the Jerwood Drawing Prize in 2004 and received the British Council Award in 2008. Navigating between the abstract and the figurative, Rachel Howard’s paintings explore the fragility of the human condition; examining the complexity of our emotional spectrum. She paints a multitude of human experiences and emotions and, for this exhibition in Hastings, has created a significant body of new work.

Over a dozen new paintings, ranging from large-scale canvases to smaller works, alter the rules of how the medium of oil paint is approached. Works such as You Can Save Me and Lean To draw on maritime themes to investigate the sense of being at odds with the world.

Rachel says 'I grew up on a farm near the sea on the North East coast of England, and having a permanent horizon every day to look at gives a wonderful reassurance in what can be at times a very uncertain world. My show at Jerwood Gallery explores both these aspects of certainty and uncertainty.'

In addition to this exhibition, Rachel Howard will be curating a one-room display which will showcase some of her favourite works from the Jerwood Collection.
