"My artistic study has always been driven by introspection. I produce psychologically loaded paintings. As with any introspective line of inquiry, I seek clarity on my place in the world, and clarity within myself. In 2021 I split my practice, distinguishing the original as cowlandjames, and the other as jcowland.art in order to explore artistic potential without disturbing any previous canonical flow of ideas.

cowlandjames:

Currenly explores the use of digital art as a genesis point for rendering physical, tangible artworks. Generic, androgenous figures act as icons - personifications of various senses of feeling. These artworks occur as intuitive responses to exterior stimuli - feelings on political climate, on self-worth, self-understanding and empathic reflections on the feelings of others. "

jcowland.art:

A tangental foray in medium-to-large scale oil painting, built around a nondistinct corporeal presence, described by colourful, ethereal forms and minimalistic figurative features. These paintings are conversations i have with myself over several weeks. The outcome is not pre-determined. The composition develops and clarifies from day to day.
