Salani, mixed media on panel, 30 x 48 in.

Perri Lynch Howard

My work explores the relationship between human perception and sense of place. Navigation, intuition and interaction are key components of these investigations. Even in the face of storm events, navigational lapses, missed signals, and lost connections, there is always an underlying grid, a place into which we all drop a pin, each day of our lives, to stake out a map, a direction, a sense of belonging. We gravitate towards that last known location, a point on the horizon, our nearest friend. Searching for a sense of place is the inspiration for my artworks.
