Flora Bowden works across drawing, printmaking and sculpture to explore how histories of time are recorded, remembered and reconstructued. She is interested in questions of permanence, instability and the reproduction of the image; and she asks how meaning is forged, destabilised and reimagined in different contexts and moments. Her recent work explores the development of the theory of deep time in 18th Century Scotland, the visual language of it, and how this might exist or be repurposed in contemporary culture.
