ARTISAN SERIES 2
New Zealand native Tim Howe’s works reflect his contemporary interpretation of landscapes, showcasing his unique ability to incorporate the disciplines of both Abstraction and Impressionism. There are no boundaries in nature, therefore sometimes the lines are blurred…his artistic expressions lie between the two.
By incorporating the dramatic use of color and texturing, Tim captures his subject matter with a unique contemporary flair. With vivid accents and lively vigorous brushstrokes, Howe continues his search for new images of familiar subjects.
Tim Howe’s beautiful paintings were introduced to Laura & Brian through a mutual friend when they saw one of his palate knife works at a party. After meeting to discuss commissioning a piece and discovering they were practically neighbors, it took about 3 minutes for Laura & Brian to become fast friends with Tim & his wife Patricia. Over several years and numerous evenings of shared food, wine, and friends, Laura & Brian ultimately commissioned or acquired five of Tim’s paintings. One of their favorite series was his whimsical abstract Vines series, which are featured on 601 Cellars Sangiovese series. The 2016 Sangiovese orange vines reflect the spicy, bright fruit which illuminates the Amador County fruit and the cherry red vines on the Sangiovese Napa Reserve represent the dark, ripe cherry fruit representative of Napa Valley’s rich terroir. Both of the label artworks are photos of originals from Laura & Brian’s personal art collection. Tim’s beautiful artwork will also be featured on 601 Cellars 2017 Super Tuscan Reserve- Napa Valley.
