Rob Howe zooms out from the singular abode and focuses his brush on the local community. In one painting, Evan, a man stands within the purple perimeter of his fence, looking slightly perplexed as he peers at us from below his thick-rimmed glasses. It feels as though we are a distant acquaintance standing on his porch, smiling awkwardly while we wait for his recognition. Walk down the road and you arrive at the local op shop, the ubiquitous red signage saliently sitting above a blurred figure in an equally ubiquitous high Vis vest – a scene we’ve all seen. Responding to specific places, Howe’s gestural application of oil and shapely blocks of colour create moments of abstraction within familiar streetscapes. The artist comments, ‘I’m exploring areas of colour that work together; making shapes of colour. What I enjoy most about both making and looking at paintings is when I catch subconscious decisions struggling to come through.’ For Howe, the concept of ‘home’ is less about a place and more about – to quote The Castle again – ‘the vibe of the thing’. He reflects, ‘I’m one of those people for whom home is more of a sense or feeling as opposed to any specific location or building. I’ve felt it even in places I have visited only fleetingly, and it’s a feeling of warmth and knowing. A sense of community strengthens this feeling.’
