Paintings by Jean Towgood
"I am attracted to natural phenomena which is marked by uncontrollable, random violence."
The awesome strength and power of the natural world reveals to Jean Towgood the fundamental human inability to have complete control. Translating this sense of loss and unpredictability to canvas is an exciting challenge.
Choosing not to focus on the traditional pastoral landscape, but rather on one that creates awe and is resplendently alive, Towgood produces a sense of vibrancy and power in her work. Her aggressively composed and articulated paintings use a variety of media to present rich colors and dramatic surface textures.
