The surreal and uncanny surface in Nigel Howlett’s monochromatic visions of human complexity.
The Face Before You Were Born takes its title from Howlett’s debut solo show at Ojiri Gallery in London. The book acts as an archive for the seamlessly rendered, faceless figures seen in the show and the captivating processes that underpin them. Unseen sketches, mini-essays and high quality artwork images are brought together across 110 pages in 3 carefully chosen paper stocks.
Foreword and essays by Millie Walton, photography by James Bryant and designed by Punkt, London.
