Art Brokerage: Ashton Howard American Artist: As America diversifies and sprawls, looking for new corners to place its expanding industries and communities, its natural beauty becomes more and more of a commodity, a treasure that is becoming harder to enjoy and in need of advocacy and artistic interpretation. Just as Remington transposed the beauty of the Western frontier to an eager mythically starved audience, and Wyeth conveyed the simplicity and grandeur of the American spirit etched in an endless landscape, Ashton Howard brings us striking impressions of the peace and tranquility that America's tropics still offer us in an increasingly untranquil world. Ashton is a son of Florida's gulf coast. He was inspired early on by the light and colors of its lushness, its wide white beaches and its gem like waters. As one of the world's foremost Tropical Artists, he shares with us the overwhelming beauty that the mixture of flora, sand, water and nature will eternally lend the human spirit. For it is still at the tropics edge that man will continue to find answers. Ashton's work captures moments in time that we all share. His use of light, his understanding of nature's force, the power of the sea, is all powerfully displayed in his work. When looking at an Ashton Howard we acutely hear the green water finding its shore, smell the life around it, and feel the visceral fantasy that the tropics eternally offer. Ashton's art has been represented and viewed in more than 25 of the world's leading galleries, especially the coastal and tropical specialty studios of the US, Hawaii, Canada and Japan. It continues to be a staple for any Tropical Art Collection. Listings wanted by Art Brokerage.
