Rowena Comrie has worked as a professional artist for the past 25 years. Originally from Essex, she studied Fine Art at Reading University, where she embraced expressionist colour field painting with confidence and passion. Now based in Glasgow, Rowena continues to develop this dramatic and emotive painting style, saying; "I make these works from a specific aesthetic point that personally expresses sublime elements of human experiences. Over many years I have refined and developed my technique, a process that continues to challenge and intrigue".
Rowena Comrie's abstract paintings have been described as 'breathtakingly elemental' (Cambridge University 'Futures' 2012). However, they are also reflectively sophisticated. Those descriptions may appear contradictory, but she makes paintings that express aesthetic feelings and ideas, that reveal the paradox of shaping a contemporary sublime.
