Recent works by Artist in Residence Robert Howsare
Howsare’s new work is influenced by the disruptive camouflage used by naval warships during World War I and explores the phenomena of perception and patterning. His work moves beyond printed materials to examine failure in relation to optics, aesthetics and other operational systems.
Howsare is a multidisciplinary artist, receiving his BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute and MFA from Ohio University. In addition to academia, he has maintained an artistic practice in commercial print and design studios around the country. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally; select venues include the Grand Rapids Art Museum, Urban Institute of Contemporary Art and the International Print Center of New York. Howsare’s work has also been recognized by WIRED Magazine, Abitare International Design Magazine, HOW, and other publications, most recently The Art of Tinkering, Meggs’ History of Graphic Design and on Adult Swim.
