Images Redeemed – James Rowell @ Canberra Contemporary Art Space Manuka

3-13 August 2017

James Rowell creates images using rich layered thickly applied acrylic paints in vibrant colours. He starts with a pre-existing image and sets out to reimage it in a new creative way. His images are identifiably anchored in other images but are distinctively a Rowell image. Several images include text quotes stenciled into the paint. I found the explanations from James in the gallery helpful.

Below are pictures and gallery materials.
