This exhibition by Edward Bowen features selected works from an intensive three year residency and working period in Sans Souci. The presentation brings together dominant elements in the artist's working process illustrating a continuous effort to further develop a personal aesthetic in painting.

In the past years of a fiercely independent and frequently controversial career path, the work has been characterized by powerful drawing, radical content and innovative, original, colour sequences and combinations. This affirmed Bowen’s highly individualized and specialist position in local fine art practice.

On several occasions since the late eighties, Bowen has been a national representative at international art forums, an Express columnist, lectured for many years at the University of the West Indies, with a short stint with the University of Trinidad and Tobago in 2010 for the new fashion design programme. He is currently in private studio practice and consultancy, operating between studio locations in Sans Souci and Port of Spain.


***TONIGHT: Andrea Arnold's 'Wuthering Heights' @ TTFF

Don't miss a special roof-top screening of Andrea Arnold's Wuthering Heights tonight at the Carlton Savannah. Arnold's film is as bruised, powerful and relentless as the turmoil that engulfs Heathcliff and Catherine through generations in Bronte's novel. If the film side-steps some of the book's devices, it does so to serve a larger story which, for the first time on the screen in a fictional account, places race centre-stage. This is not just a period film about a bygone era, it is a brooding poem about the state of many things today. UNMISSABLE.

The film will also screen with Adam Low's fine documentary, A Regular Black. FIND out more about the screenings and the Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival (TTFF) here.
