JOHN HOWES

John Howes lives and works on a sheep farm on the Gwrhyd Mountain just northwest of Pontardawe in the upper Swansea Valley combining a career as artist, designer, musician and farmer. Making work with and from the very substance and knowledge of a location is paramount for him, whether as an intervention at a particular site or as site-derived works for exhibition elsewhere.

 
"His work demonstrates a concern for landscape and for the protection of the environment and it has provided inspiration for much of his creative output. Recent works explore the processes of management, documentation and representation of agricultural landscapes"
