Alexander Jowett is a peripatetic artist who has wandered the world observing and interacting with a global culture. His works focus on universal contemplative themes using minimalist means.
Alexander Jowett incorporates a variety of traditional and non-traditional mediums in his art explorations. Often using a variety of materials (linen, wool, denim, rope, found material etc.) to express aspects of how we see and feel art. Working in series that draw upon a use of repetitive process Jowett’s works follow from a Kantian philosophy by which we see not based simply upon what is in front of us but by past experiences. Jowett’s use of material is a catalyst for the viewer to bring their own past experiences into the works in front of them. Whilst the repetitive process is minimal in means the works themselves are more akin to aesthetic philosophical dissertations than truly minimalist artworks.
