Jug, Teapot & bowl

Mary Knowland


Ink and gouache on paper. Here the play of cool colour is complemented by the use of purple surrounding the busy use of line.

Mary Knowland is an artist who has lived and worked in an around Oxford for most of her life. Jug, Teapot & Bowl is one of a series of paintings on display at Derwent House on paper in Mary’s unseeing or ‘Zen like’ style. This process is a more meditative way of connecting to the subject as she is not looking at the work as it progresses. Attention to the subject is unbroken, awareness of how the body moves to create the marks is much greater and the connection to the subject is both calm and deep.
