Tom Howse @ Saatchi

Tom Howse's interiors revel in his paint handling.  What appears at first glance as camera ready paintings quickly shift into a mediated conversation with the materiality of paint.  You'll need to check out the details to see what I mean. Small items like the chair seat, teapot and cat become much more interesting upon careful examination and that transformation makes all the difference.
