Peter Howson: Phlegethon




Flowers Gallery presents new works by Scottish artist Peter Howson. The exhibition of apocalyptic paintings and drawings draws its title from the mythical river Phlegethon, known as the ‘river of fire’, which featured notably as a site of punishment in Dante’s Divine Comedy.

Throughout his career, Howson has tackled the subject of human conflict and destruction, both in his role as a former official war artist and in his observations of everyday struggles.

In the exhibition Phlegethon, Howson explores themes of prophecy, suffering and redemption, aligning his harrowing vision of contemporary crisis with a collision of references stemming from medieval literature, Renaissance poetry and 20th century science fiction.
