In his artist’s statement, Howland says that his life has been devoted to being a collector of images and sensations. “My process of accumulation is via two agents — nature and culture,” he said. “My early stirrings were to be in and observing nature, as this has always moved me from a very young age during my boyhood in Duluth, Minnesota. It is in nature, I reconnect with the boy who explored woods, fields, ponds, rivers; who always was checking under rocks and boards, waist deep in ponds, climbing trees, etc.”
