Deborah Howard is an Associate Professor of Drawing in addition to her position as the Head of the Painting Department at the University of Denver. Howard has made pieces covering a variety of subject matter, including series about the Dead Sea Scrolls, child Holocaust survivors and shoes. Despite the apparent visual variety displayed by her works, Howard finds that human presence is always a part of her work. In her selection for the triennial, Howard will display four shoe installations. She sees shoes as “both personal and universal” – shoes can communicate a lot about a person specifically as well as providing room for more general observations about the style and ideas of the people from the time period. The pieces, “Cellular Memory,” “Giverny,” and “The Wall,” will be accompanied by a new piece for a continued exploration of these themes.
