Georgie Cowan MA -
Georgie Cowan won a scholarship to the prestigious Glasgow School of Art, achieved her Masters of Art degree at Hertfordshire University School of Art and has been awarded a British Design Award for Illustration.
Her work extends from black and white prints and painted textiles to large abstract oil paintings.? Her latest Oil Ink on Parchment pieces, each individually painted, lean on the traditions of Chagall, Beckmann and surreal artist's like Ensor. Through the use of animal and flora motifs she explores metaphors for human folly and emotional situations derived partly from classical mythology and Medieval art. These new works are sometimes dark, sometimes poignant and often humourous. Her latest works reflect on the collapse of the Banks and the infra-structure which is taking place in today's market. The only thing that survives is the land.
