Highly accomplished in its deployment of various materials and techniques, Josh Bowe’s work, although primarily figurative, nonetheless represents an on-going investigation into the fundamentals of representation and abstraction. At once complex and intuitive, his paintings combine form, colour and texture to create a strong sense of vigour and dynamism, the contrasting figurative and abstract pictorial elements stimulating the viewer to see familiar subjects in fresh and challenging ways. Moreover, by staying faithful to well-established aesthetic principles, Josh Bowe’s image-making pulls off that all too elusive balancing act between innovation and accessibility, endowing his work with exceptional intellectual and visual appeal.
