Description

Leicester-based artist Tim Fowler will be showing a selection of paintings from his ‘Provenance’ series, which depict migratory plants that have followed a similar journey to his own DNA, from West Africa, via the Caribbean to the UK.

Entitled ‘The Ground’, after the name that many Bajans give to their gardens, the exhibition will also feature brand new work inspired by Fowler’s recent trip to Andromeda Botanic Gardens in Barbados.

The exhibition will be a continued evolution of Fowler’s large-scale paintings, combined with a personal exploration of his Bajan heritage leading back to its African origins through his botanical interest in migratory crops, traditional plants used by African slaves and those still used today by modern day Bajans. Fowler says it is important that the exhibition comes from a place of learning which represents his journey of discovery, referencing a darker colonial history as well as its cultural beauty.
