About

The sculptural abstract paintings of New Zealand artist Claudia Jowitt are mesmerizing in detail and subtle application of pastel color. Expressive gestures with lilting rhythms are captured as testimony to generosity and abundance. Jowitt's process also upends traditional concepts of femininity and art practice as she challenges the history of craft versus serious art through seemingly ordinary kitchen tools.

This one-of-a-kind 17 inch square artwork is an abstract composition on panel. The title "Ilakolako" is Fijan for 'trip' or 'voyage'. This artwork is signed by Jowitt on the back of the panel. It is wired and ready to hang. This highly textured painting has a depth of 2.5 inches. Free local Los Angeles area delivery and free professional installation. Affordable Continental U.S. and worldwide shipping is available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery is included with this unique work.

Jowitt uses a variety of techniques to create her works. Aside from an achingly delicate and subtle palette, the application of the materials is unique. Acrylic and oils are not only applied with a brush, they are manipulated with cake-icing sets, spatulas, tile-grouting combs, and an expanse of other kitchen implements.

The result of her process is painting as sculpture. An intricate filigree is formed in delicate and bewildering webs of paint. Cloud-like shapes fan outwards, their growth patterns forming intimate landscapes. Expressive gestures with lilting rhythms are captured as testimony to abundance and generosity. Such confections with their floating, delectable multitudes can only invite enjoyment.

Claudia Jowitt earned her MFA from the University of Auckland's Elam School of Fine Arts. She is featured in Art Forum New Zealand and has been gaining international attention for her intimate, yet audaciously textured work. Her work is held in public and private collections and is exhibited internationally.
