The Ephemeral | Sam Howie | Solo [GRAFTd] exhibition

Encompassing Sauerbier spaces with painting-based site-specific installations, The Ephemeral is an exploration of ideas looking to highlight contradictions and similarities in relation to the universal and the particular, the past and the present, and ultimately, a deeper contemplation between the ephemeral and the eternal. The work of Sam Howie remains based on a material exploration of paint, particularly trying to find a balance between viewing paint through the lens of a psychologist, a physicist and an aesthete. Finding signs of the materials own ontology and how it responds in a variety of situations. Through these situations, his art becomes a philosophic, cultural and spiritual endeavour, questioning works of art in relation to our own existential situation. Image credit: Sam Howie.
