Discover new works by Nicolette Dowler available to buy online and in our art gallery. 'I aim to combine a modern perspective with classical techniques to create something beautiful and timeless. I love the luxury and the vitality that oils create, and in my work I always use vibrant colour and textures to draw the viewer in to my detailed and luscious compositions. In my still lives I combine these principles, elements of natural and manmade beauty with hidden moments of humour and decidedly non-still life (most popularly my bees!). Having enjoyed considerable success with these still lives I am now developing them further with inspiration from the Dutch Vanitas still lives and modern still life photography. I love making something that might initially seem ugly (rotten fruit, skulls) into something really beautiful. Mostly self taught, I have exhibited extensively in national exhibitions, including the Royal Institute of Oil Painters and the Society of Wildlife artists. I have been featured in several magazines, been shortlisted and commended in national competitions, and exhibit every year in the Affordable Art Fairs.’ To discuss works by Nicolette Dowler please contact email@example.com, or call 07799 535765.
