W

orking primarily in watercolour, Marc Bowditch’s recent paintings oscillate between the poetic and the material.

His process sees him painting lines in veiled hues, then contouring, cutting and folding paper, discarding and adjusting until he arrives at the final mosaic assemblages. Signs of manufacture withdraw from the completed works, leaving restless and ecstatic colour fields of translucent pigment that engage the viewer’s imagination. Through the use of his diaphanous medium, which is delicate and precise, he modifies the

surface and space of the artwork, creating a proximity of colour that suggests a formal construction as much as a state of emotive coincidence. Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, Bowditch studied Art and Architecture in Canada and Italy. He is presently based in Berlin, Germany, and has participated in group shows in London, Amsterdam and Hong Kong. marcbowditch.com nmbowditch@me.com
