About this artwork

Howard calls on light and shadow to amplify an atmosphere of contrasts. In Band Rotunda, West Coast, meticulously detailed architectural elements are revealed amongst a clearing while it's surrounding vivid green forest exudes a gentle sense of movement under a clear and bright sky. This poetic dichotomy of movement and stillness provokes a feeling of captured growth and time, ultimately succumbing to a sense of serenity.
