Demonstration time: 2pm each day
Owie’s paintings are inspired by what she sees, hears and encounters. She is interested in dramatic landscapes, concepts of spirituality and belief systems. She likes to paint pictures that remind the viewer that we are all just visitors and caretakers on this earth. Through her extensive travels she has discovered wonderful crafts, in particular figures that mean something or represent a belief of an idea, triggering the desire to paint a series in homage. She is interested in symbolic ideas and the connection different societies have with an image and then the connection that she makes with that image.
Owie is interested in layering and blocking of imagery, expressive marks and colour and likes to play between texture and softness, transparency and opacity, building layers in oil, encaustic or acrylic, working both on both canvas and wood panels.
