  • Biography

    My work explores colour and space. It shifts between representation and abstraction and often lies somewhere in between. It aims to provide a visual arena for reflection and contemplation, whether it be a mountain face or a colour field. I work in many mediums and my works are held in international collections in Europe, Japan and America.

    There is a sense of stillness in my work that perhaps reflects the years I spent living in Japan where the beauty of space and stillness is itself a sought after aesthetic. Though still, many of the pieces are heavily saturated - the colours vivid and striking. Others provide a space for contemplation and for thoughts to develop and flit around. I am influenced by many artists from Ornulf Opdahl to Mark Rothko, all of whom create a sense of space in their art.

    Last Light At Sea 2

    5 Stars

     A stunning painting. Reminds me of the Monet paintings I once saw in Russia - when you look at the canvas, the image comes out of the blue (colour) and captures the atmosphere of dusk over water. I Love it.

    Testimonial:Seascape 3 & Seascape 4 by Howard Sills 

    "I'm delighted with 'Seascape 3' and 'Seascape 4'. Both the colours and composition are very strong and the series is very well conceived. The colours are even stronger than they appear on screen and the quality surpassed my expectation for a print. Great work Howard!! Thank you also for the recommendation regarding framing. . Very confident.
