Statement

Elizabeth  Bowles  is an artist that works with many different mediums. her work typically having to do with the memories of childhood ideals intermingling with the aesthetics of renaissance masterpieces. Often her art manifests in many different forms that is sometimes a combination of drawing, painting, garment making, and photography.  With her drawings and paintings, she aims to create a space of intense mark making to develop a scene that has a similar feeling to a classic pre-raphaelite painting with religious iconography intermingling throughout. The subject, often women, have a certain softness accentuated with a muted black and white palette. On The other hand her photography and garment making aim to create intense shadows alongside bright colors whilst existing in a space created through her own intentions. The intricacies of fine detail through embroidery and beading propel her garments  to come to life to aid as props for her striking photographs. The creative space, more than often, emulates a serene feeling. The continued theme of her artwork seems to focus on mystical and fictional creatures like angels, nymphs, and fairies. Elizabeth Bowles is a graduate from Maryland Institute College of Art class of 2020. Her plans are to receive a Masters in Art Therapy from Drexel University College of Nursing and Health services in 2022.
