Self Portrait of the Artist in his Studio
Cupola Creations is owned and operated by Howard J. Partridge. It serves to exhibit his work as a visual artist and constructivist who works primarily with digital and mixed media, and to a lesser extent, art photography. It is a branch of Cupola Consulting of San Jose, CA.
Coming from an architectural background, Howard often finds himself at the crossroads between art and technology. Trying to strike a balance between the two is a challenge that he faces every time he develops new work. In the process of exploring this nexus, he has discovered a vibrant source of design ideas that inspire his artistic endeavors.
Howard takes a constructivist approach to creating his artwork, building on a past body of work to produce new works. The idea of taking something old and reworking it, or putting it in a new context, is a frequent theme in his creations. This is not always apparent in the resulting art, whose metamorphosis may have been so extreme that the viewer sees something entirely new. But it is nearly always part of Howard's creative process.
As George Santayana wrote, "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
