MARTIN JOHN FOWLER
Martin John Fowler is an artist working in the Yorkshire Lincolnshire Borders. Whilst traveling and recording the wild coastal areas from the Scottish isles to the hidden coves of Cornwall. Martin was born and brought up in the Mining towns of South Yorkshire.
“I work mainly outdoors on location reworking in my studio from sketches and notes made. I am interested in the sense and mood of a place and not making a literal copy. I aim for a critical balance of abstraction and reality. My outcomes are always vigorous in treatment, showing my love for the manipulation of the medium to create passages of energy and textured balance alongside areas of quiet”.
The Prevailing Sense of Change
'Drawing And Painting working on my ongoing project intensified by the prevailing sense of change from Coastal working ports to the Rural/Urban Landscapes of Britain, from childhood memories to the present which record and reflect the constant change and adaptions of an entire ways of life’.'
