My art work expresses many opposites – straight to curved, open to closed, light to dark, geometric to organic. These forms are constructed out of straight lengths of aluminum square tubing. The curved volumes are created by placing straight bars in a curved space. My sculptures are uplifting because the geometric mathematical system repeats similar systems as is generated in Nature.
Linda Howard's sculptures are created by taking simple geometric forms, setting them in repetition or progression and rotating them in space separated by spacers.
The results are forms which relate to shapes in nature and architecture, such as organic forms, archways, doorways and/or gateways. These structures are then repeated or mirrored to make up larger sculptures.
Howard's works are fabricated out of aluminum square tubing, either with a brushed finish or painted white. There are no curves, only curved volumes, created by placing straight bars in a curved space. When completed, Howard's sculptures catch ambient light, accentuating light and shadow.
The result is an expression of many opposites – straight to curved, open to closed, light to dark, geometric to organic.
Linda Howard's art work is considered both Contemporary and Classical.
