The Artist, in his studio, smiling ear-to-ear. Cowland 2021

East Sussex, United Kingdom.  Foundation Diploma Central Saint Martins - UA London in 2009, BA Fine Art: Painting at the University of Brighton 2013.

I make Artworks that are, at their core, about mortality. Even before I reached the age of 10 I'd lie awake at night and interrogate the idea of afterlife. I'd try to see from the impossible perspective of watching myself experience nothingness beyond the point of departure, and that attempt at taking an impossible perspective has chased me throughout my artistic career - such as it is.

Art is a method of decyphering one's own Life, but Life is too complex a code to rely on one manner of Art-making exclusively as your strategy. Let's say, "The key to one's existence has a form," and Art seeks to offer a view inwards. One must take multiple viewpoints inward facing to understand that form as anything but a shape.
