TRACEY HOLLIS ROWE
A Contemporary British Landscape Artist based in the North West UK, whose main subject is Wild Places & Landscapes
My Compositions are created from memory, using expressive gestural marks to build layers, texture, negative spaces and form. Intuitive mark making with palette knives and tools, using paints and mediums that are then manipulated until an image emerges.
Echoes of places roamed, mountains hiked and nature explored, translated into a painting the viewer can connect with. A view with a sense of familiarity about it, a place they have been to or somewhere that reminds them of home
I work from my home studio and my main studio in an old grade II listed mill at Creative Spin Studios, Leigh Spinners Mill in Leigh, Lancashire.
The outdoors provides me with a constant source of inspiration and in particular my love of the North UK where I am from.
When I am not in my studio painting I can be found out hiking across the many wonderful 'Wild Places' of the North
