Fleur Cowgill has created her own visual language of color and energetic, gestural brushstroke. In abstract landscapes, like Beyond Lefkada: Under Water, Cowgill lets fluid paint form an organic grid on the surface of the canvas and adds layers of color. She uses wax to create deep ridges, and carves or scrapes into them to reveal the colorful glaze beneath.
Cowgill has lived in several countries, from England to the Belgian Congo, experiencing a vast difference in light, color, and landscape. She draws inspiration from these references, filling her canvases with evocative sensations.
