Seth Howe is a New York-based artist and architect whose work combines elements of fine art, architecture and functional design. Evoking the strategies of Minimalism, Howe creates austere, highly conceptual works whose negotiations of form, color and scale raise broader questions surrounding the nature of physical perception. Through elegant design and a considered use of space, his work encourages an active exchange between artwork and audience, reinforcing the viewing experience as a subjective, embodied event unfolding in real time.
Seth Howe received a Bachelor of Architecture from Cornell University and a Master of Fine Arts from Hunter College. Upon graduation, he worked closely with the late Franklin D. Israel in Los Angeles, and formed his own interdisciplinary design firm, STUDIOHOWE, in 2001. Howe has designed and built numerous architectural and interior design commissions in New York, Los Angeles, and the Hamptons, and is a NY State registered architect. He has concurrently produced and exhibited original artworks, which includes functional art, sculpture, and photography.
