Visual artist Ingrid Bowen works from a bush studio in Sydney’s north, exhibits and hosts workshops regularly.
Evoking the colour, form and feel of her natural surroundings, Ingrid works with watercolours and inks to create ambiguous landforms and fragmented perspectives. The meditative rhythms of her compositions are played out in details drawn in and out of focus from observations and recollections.
In Ingrid’s work, the expansive beauty of the Australian landscape emerges, refracted through the individuality of human experience. Drawing on how place is linked to memory and imagination, her works tell a visual story of landscapes lost and longed for.
“Working as a landscape artist, I find surprising connections and coincidences consistently come up when I start studying a place. It always starts being about the land and ends up being about the people.”
