The title for the series stems from Howard's personal reaction to the violent terrorist attacks on London in 2005, âIt 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.
âHuman Shrapnel' oil drawings on paper, signed by the artist, available exclusively through Other Criteria priced between £2000 and £5000.
Other Criteria have three permanent shops on 36 New Bond Street, London, 14 Hinde St, London and 988 Madison Avenue, New York.
