Works by John Howlin

I can recall like it was yesterday John making the constructions, like the one pictured here. He had a studio, I think it was on Brock, and he was banging together all this stuff, this found material, and painting it up monotone grey. They were delightful, so inventive.

The two circles form a piece that John sent to us last year. It hangs in a place of honour in our living room.

The puzzle painting (sorry for the bad photo) was done in 1963. On the back it says, For Sheila G 97, love Howlin. (you know Sheila G as Tuffy P).

These are really cool pieces.
