Art at The Lanesborough

Barbara Howey

 

Barbara Howey lives and works in Norwich. Her paintings invite the viewer to experience a close-up view of fungal, plant and animal life. The paintings are part of an ongoing series focusing on more than human life found on walks, gathered from a variety of sources in East Anglia, from suburban green spaces to local woodlands and wetlands that are threatened with “development”. 

The work is made wet into wet in one sitting revealing the process of making through the stains, drips and marks that describe the forms. The use of heightened colour and gestural marks references the painterly language of expressionism, which explore a subjective experience of the matter.
