Meghan Howland is 28 year-old contemporary oil painter from Portland who creates figurative paintings with a narrative edge. Her works are often dreamlike, and yet carry a weight of something that is slightly more dissonant. The question of whether something is safe or dangerous, loving or hateful, is often unexplained in her work. While conveying a situation or mood that is slightly ambiguous, this makes it up to the viewer to resolve what is happening, creating an unending range of emotions and possibilities.
