ARTIST INFO
Bowman's two bodies of work inform each other, with works from her ‘Fragment’ series giving way to her paintings. Through a playful engagement of material exploration, found everyday ephemera are removed from their original context and reassembled to create entirely new narratives. Highly tactile, her patchwork paintings are formed by embroidering large swathes of treated canvas into patchwork paintings, playfully distorting the components that make the very structure of the painting. Taking inspiration from the Japanese aesthetic Wabi-sabi, the works are made on the floor of the studio. Pieces are then selected at random for their various formal qualities, be it - shape, palette or texture, before being collaged together. Through a playful engagement of material exploration, her process is a mix of intuition and deliberate placement.
