Marking Out the Boundaries (2023)

Day Bowman’s work is about finding a dynamic: a place on the axis of figuration and abstraction. In recent months her gaze has turned away from the seaside towards inshore landscapes. Marking Out the Boundaries addresses the rural landscape of Britain today which, thanks to countless television programmes, holiday tour companies and painters through the ages, we have come to accept as a bucolic patchwork quilt of shape and colour. History tells another story.
