Rachel Howard explores themes of suicide and addiction in her Fiction/Fear/Fact catalogue, and opens discussion of her work with Adam E. Mendelsohn. Other Criteria has a limited edition of 27, distributed with a unique drawing by the artist within each cover. The book is prefaced by a poem by Sue Hubbard.

Swiftly executed drawings in Indian ink are accompanied by large, household gloss paintings. These scenes are figurative and symbolic – crow and dog are strung up, suspended as token harbingers of death and depression. They are joined by the slack bodies of anonymous men and women, whose privacy is transgressed by our presence. Cadavers are drained; some nude, others slumped and dirtied with the half-loaded paint brush. Many have been decapitated or severed at the hip, their necks or knees jutting into the frame. These are paintings about loss, fear and desperation; fictional paintings about factual realities.

In keeping with the problematic subject matter, the artist explains: ‘painting is like a sort of alchemy of timing, patience, precision and chance […] I want these works to capture pain.’
