Oil on Board
725 x 1725 mm
‘Dancing Light’, a continuation of Howard’s ‘Milford Light’ series, offers an expansive vision of the landscape with an energetic burst of softening light extending from beyond a valley. Howard’s subdued palette emphasises a sense of light against evocatively warm greens and subtle touches of earthen rust. We are invited into this serene vision, the large scale of the painting further asserting an alluring sense of immersion in light and texture.
Working diversely within a broader abstract methodology, Stephen Howard’s nonrepresentational compositions of landscapes are paired with a precise handling of colour, light, and fine detail, imbuing his paintings with a colliding sense of tension and expression. His sensitive understanding of a vibrant palette in oils creates a luminosity that emphasises his true subjects – light and movement.
