Small Paintings: Cosmic Glimpses

Frank Bowling’s paintings offer a vision of a universe of his own imagining. They are images of an energetic chaos in which the mineral phenomena of fire and water, earth and air are caught in the very process of generation; out of this elemental and undifferentiated energy emerge the ever-changing morphologies of flame and light-fall, waterfall and cloud, rainbow, rain and the mists of aerial weathers. In this cosmos of atmospheric or aqueous colour-light may be discerned, with the shock of familiarity, the vegetable forms of tree, bush, leaf and flower; the rough surfaces of earth; the evanescent shimmer, shadow and flash of sunlit mudflat, forest clearing, flowing river; the tactility of animal scale and skin…
