Ken Cowell is a painter of light and vision influenced by the waterways and coast of Southern Tasmania.
From his studio in White Beach Bay Ken Cowell paints great soft maritime pieces that express the mysterious mingling of water, fog, land, sea and ship. His first exhibition with Nolan Gallery explored Bruny Island’s perilous maritime past through the narrative of historic shipwrecks all expressed with rich, layered oil glazes.
His works on paper in oil pastel show the expressive process that underlies his oil paintings.
He is currently working towards an exhibition about Storm Bay.
