Though he has average two exhibitions per year since his college days at Miami University, 47 years ago… much of Dean Howell’s creative work has never been seen outside his studios and storage places (which-by necessity- have proliferated through the years, as the variety of mediums-and scale-have increased.)
That’s about to change!
The up-coming “LIFETIME RETROSPECTIVE”, SALE, and AUCTION will not only open the warehouse doors, but also invite you into Howell’s psyche…his personal philosophy of life, education, art, and commercialism…in a world, redesigned!
Though his earlier works in LIVING REALISM, the TIME MARKER SERIES, and his ASSIMILATED SERIES set him apart, and launched his career in New York City… his latter works about primal fear, the environment, and learning to “surrender the fight” dominate his current works across the media board-including a full-length documentary of his life and works, and his most recent essays on embodiment . Works on paper, plaster, bronze, oil, acrylic, wood, clay, video, and welded steel present a “feast” for the eyes, and a formidable “fret” for the mind!
His minute and a half video, “…why do we kill” is haunting, and unforgettable.
Howell will be present to provide verbal histories, content motivations, and technical info. about individual works, and the exhibition as a whole. Three of his very latest works will be unveiled at the Opening/Preview Party!
Auctioneer, Jake Finkelstein of Spectrum Auction LLC, has been retained to bring the hammer down on hundreds of works…and twenty two sponsors have already put their money down!!
