“Black with Shapes”, 2011, oil on linen, 11×15 in
“Sketches for Leaves”, 2009

My work has often been, on some level, about space. Even in the earliest and most illusionistic, I was thinking about how shapes, objects, colors were arranged in relation to one another.  Most start in a sketchbook, and go through several drawing phases. This is one of the abstractions from my last show, and the earliest sketchbook version of a large painting I did a few years back. Even as they develop, the paintings usually maintain some of my initial thumbnail impulses.  -Ridley Howard, 2012
