Stowe offers reflections on familial connection, whether remembered or imagined. Her paintings in various media address the complexities of home, relationships, and family identity. Starting with the narrative, Stowe’s work proceeds to translate into coded, ethereal complex landscapes.
Repeated symbols such as small animals, cupcakes and balloons take on associations of meaning through juxtapositions of placement in the installation. These objects connote intimate observation of family; rites of passage, construction of memory.
The perspective is deliberately contradictory, cast shadows in flat spaces, infinite voids, to enhance the relationship of psychological space. All with the intention of leading the viewer to an other-worldly illustration of the complex relationship between the negotiation of home, marriage and family identity.
