Peter Howson, Paintings and Prints, Glasgow Print Studio.
Peter Howson’s new work continues the spectacle oi the masculinist ﬁgurative tradition at the New Glasgow Boys. The show is a display oi Howson’s technical skill and compositional ability in a wide variety at media: paintings, drawings, etchings and monotypes. This ensures a continuing appreciation at a formal level. However, the work repeats. like an unresolved neurosis, the iamiiiar patterns at patriarchal excess and the grandiosity oi the observer-cum-sociai critic. The formulaic quality at the work as a whole reminds one at both Victorian book illustration and contemporary male science fiction iantasies.
The context provided tor Howson’s work, by himself and the establishment, demands that we take the images— at social deprivation, city ‘lowliie'. and women — as some representation at reality with which he has empathy and identification. This unhelpful claim will unsettle the temaie viewer. (Lorna J. Waite)
