Surreal and meditative, artworks by Nigel Howlett (UK, b.1979) offer monochromatic reflections on the complexities of human existence. Inside Out, along with a number of his other works, depicts a faceless cartoon character whose body language is highly expressive despite her anonymity. Many of Howlett’s recent works have been inspired by the strangeness of life under pandemic, as well as the evolution of wider social and political issues in recent years. Depicted peering out of window blinds, the protagonist of Inside Out is immediately relatable in light of the psychological and social impacts of the past year. Although minimal, Howlett’s art captures dramatic moments that are evocative, yet left open to interpretation - elegantly emphasising humanity’s ability to communicate without speaking.
