Clifford How's works meditate on the rugged identity and harsh weather systems of the Tasmanian landscape. The artist gives significance to form through a palette knife, modelling this primal terrain with a known intimacy. From deep ancient tarns nestled in dolerite basins to exposed plateau sedgeland, How’s paintings are suspended in time capturing the unseen and fleeting qualities of place. A restricted palette of mauve, grey-green, bone and black form the visual language of the works, becoming both surface and object: the textural surface of the paint is as much a part of the work as the image itself. Through the multitude of topographies tacitly evoked, the works conjure and clarify the emotion of experiencing these remote destinations.
