ABOUT TABITHA STOWE
Tabitha Stowe is a West Australian self taught artist, who has worked with interior designers and home décor outlets for over 20 years. Her beautiful work in the south west region of WA Margraret River is show cased at the Amelia Park Winery.
Working with fine inks, acrylic pigments and patterned papers gives the successive layers, textures and patterns to Tabitha's original paintings. Tabitha's Empresses females are a creative journey that can take up anywhere up to a few months to years to finally complete a collection. "My Empress collection are filled with women in fancy bright kimonos to the full roaring 1920s, feathers and hats adorned with magnolias and ribbons. I get inspired from old vintage dancing, Asian and French clothing. I find myself rummaging through all kinds of décor idea and I find myself very attracted to exotic maximalist decorating style combined with a style of feminine eclectic. I adore 19th century follies from vintage burlesque right through to even to the Persian kaftan from the Ancient Mesopotamian. My other abstract painting subjects range from the natural world such as bodies of waters filled with lotus flowers to fields of poppies. Each piece is a combination of layers and textures and then waiting for them to dry over time before applying the the next layer. All my paintings are influenced from beauty and I aim at capturing a rich lavish combination of colors that are timeless and filled with vibrancy and textures. I sometimes use my actual hands to paint, yes my hands! I need to feel the paint and how my fingers control the final look. My water lilies are usually processed this way. I like to use my camera to photograph patterns and rejoin them together creating a tapestry for a painting, much like collage. I sometimes use a digital approach first to see my work from a birds eye view. My abstracts are not planned though color combing is. Abstract is my way of processing any internal or outside energies that may need expressing that words alone can't speak." Tabitha Stowe has private collections around the world including Australia, India, New York, Chicago and Germany.
