  • Works 1 - Contemporary Art

    Most of us reflect on what an artist's intentions when creating a work. In the experience of contemporary art I believe the value of what an artist's work may mean to us is important. I hope I define enough in my text to cultivate interest for the viewer.

  • Works 2 - Alternative Art

    In my art the theme is my priority, with an understanding of art history and technical skill the portrayal is considered. After an extended period I choose my approach, always avoiding adherence to a single unified style to define everything.

  • Works 3 - Abstract Diverse Art

    Abstract painting affords me another dimension in addition to my figurative painting. It can offer a whole new variety of approaches to the theme and how it’s communicated.

  • Works 4 - Portraits

    Portrait painting by Scottish Artist and Craftsman Paul Mowbray.

  • Works 5 - Art Detail

    This page details the processes and background in the forming of some of my artwork. Those detailed below benefit from a degree of background insight to help construct the atmosphere of the finished artwork.

  • Works 1 - The Void Stares Back by Paul Mowbray

    The Void Stares Back - Paul Mowbray

  • Works 2 - Pentimenti Series by Paul Mowbray

    Pentimento (or plural pentimenti) will be familiar to most who have studied paintings and have recognised a change in the paints texture hinting at 'something else' beneath the existing surface of the painted work.

  • Works 1 - Triptych, 'As I happen' by Paul Mowbray

    In this triptych, the inclusion of the iconic images immediately offers gravity and context for the viewer. In this way we may form a familiar resonant, it is interesting how this is taken by our recollection and can function in a new way/sense.

  • Works 1 - Britain's Saviour by Paul Mowbray

    Painted in my deconstructed gradient block tonal style, this, along with paint blurring/soft focus are my regular ways of depicting recall and memory. Inspired by handmade Spitfire assembled parts.

  • Works 1 - Conduit Series by Paul Mowbray

    The Conduit series explores the linear route, literal or symbolic in the act of painting. Transformative control In most of the series generates a tension and suggest a psychological movement that transcends an often-commonplace perspective and view.

  • Works 1 - Hopper Series by Paul Mowbray

    The Hopper series explores a capacity for shifts in meaning when only the slightest of changes are made to iconic works of art. Edward Hopper's art I greatly respect, so with a focused attention to detail and scale I approached this series.

  • Works 2 - Threshold Series

    The Threshold series takes us onto the axis and conveys the face and aspect of layers, mainly moderate in materiality with visual subtlety.

  • Works 2 - Travel Allegory by Paul Mowbray

    As of yet, composed of three paintings with more to follow. The concept stems from travel as the vehicle for exploration, I then further the experience by imposing and exploring an imaginary context.

  • Works 2 - Vignettes, Pendants by Paul Mowbray

    I class some of my works as vignettes, they may relate to main groups of work or be stand alone pieces. The pendant is an update or attachment to a series, and normally are quite distant pictorially, functioning as a further development on a theme.
