Artwork description

We are proud to present a new digital print, one of a set of three, which is derived from Bowey’s intensive days of drawing in the warmth of the Victorian greenhouses at West Dean in Sussex.
In making these digital prints, Bowey was supported by Maciej Urbanek, one of the digital printmaking tutors at the RA Schools. This collaborative process allowed Bowey to experiment with various digital mark-making techniques to generate new work based on her distinctive pencil drawings on paper.

Bowey studied at the Royal College of Art when Ruskin Spear and Leonard Rosoman were tutors, and was particularly influenced by Carel Weight.
