Strata of Synthesis is an exhibition where artists Andy Yoder (professor at Mason School of Art) and Phaan Howng examine the natural world as a fantastical state. They propose connections in historical and contemporary crises relating to intricate layers of domestic and societal narratives within their work. This synthesis within their practice manifests their efforts to explore diverse logical aspects of meaning and interpretations within their everyday environment.

His work is in numerous public and private collections, and exhibitions include shows at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Queens Museum of Art, Winkleman Gallery in New York, and the American Academy of Arts and Letters. His work has been reviewed in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The New Yorker and Art in America. Commissions include works for ESPN, Continental Airlines, Progressive Insurance, David and Susan Rockefeller, and the Saatchi Collection.
