about josephine

Josephine Rowntree’s abstract paintings record an interest in the duration between the time when an idea is formed and the moment it is acted upon. This duration is present in her paintings, which comprise abstract and figurative elements that interact haphazardly to create a visual map of an idea or a feeling. Although this desire has been present in her work before, it is developing to become more spontaneous and direct. The new paintings show an interest in finding a way to visualise time - a representation that is instinctive and abstracted but that hints at the “real” through its vibrant and energetic quality.
