LARA BOWEN

EMOTIVE STILL LIFE AND GARDENS

A tangle of blooms, a snippet of blue sky, a shard of strong sunlight and the short-lived relationship between a favourite mug and a collection of spring blooms. Flowers are the language but they are metaphor for the passing of time and an investigation of personal experiences.

 

"Recording the tick-tock of existence has always been my motivator. To attempt to capture a sense of something to do with humanity by using coloured substances applied to a surface is compulsive. The flirt with that elusive magic is addictive."

 

Lara uses inks, oils and wax to build layers of texture and colour. She often removes entire sections so as to reveal the ghost of those marks, only to then work into them again. The effect created is something dreamlike; a partially remembered afternoon or an emotion recalled by the stimulation of other senses.
