Benjamin Earl Howen III
Wisconsinite, exploring the depths of self-expression and subconscious extraction.
A wide spectrum of style, technique, medium, and media. Works explore inner thought extraction, pareidolia, emotional responses, therapeutic creation. Influences include artists such as Picasso, Willem De Kooning, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Jackson Pollock. The meditative creation process begins with initial stokes executed with the limited purpose, additional instinctive marks build the basis for images beginning to form, continued attention renders them to completion.
“The images in my work are brought to life by the energy and emotion I give them; extracted from me, existing because I created them.”
