MEET JACK HOWE!
My good friend and genius assemblage artist Jack Howe was in town this weekend.
He dropped by my studio with his effervescent wife Trudy to visit, and take a few pics of his latest work. These pieces are what Jack calls “Pocket Shrines” Jack has a talent for finding the most amazing trinkets and bizarre antique curiosities them transforming them into story art.
Here’s a few of his latest works that can be seen at Gold Bug in Pasadena.
Jack can describe in great detail how every individual part of the piece tells a story.
Each box opens to reveal an entire scene.
Here, Jack demonstrates the pure escents of low brow art.
