Artist Spotlight

Sunil Howlader

    Artist Statement:

  • My style combines the beauty of naturalistic representation with the expressive elements of abstraction. Often times a single painting may transition between the realms of representation and abstraction. I like this style, Semi-abstract Expressionism, because it gives me the freedom to add emotions, feelings and ideas to what I see. I express these with meaningful lines, forms and colors. I use bold strokes, dabbles and scribbles to represent the emotional activities of the psyche. My paintings of nature contain much symbolism, with water-lilies symbolizing beauty, fish representing abundance, and horses (destination series) for our struggle to achieve conscious or unconscious goals.
