Howse monumentalises figures or objects to provide them with a greater power, although an irrelevant and superficial one. “We have a vast selection of theories and models to lend understanding to our lives such as sciences and religions. But essentially each of these versions on explaining our existence is just one angle. There is no reason why we can not manufacture our own theories”. Howse was shortlisted for the Saatchi Gallery and Channel 4’s 2011 New Sensations prize and Prize winner of the John Moores Painting Prize in 2018.
