GIFT VOUCHERS

Art Buyer, Art Collector or Artist?

Choose from three unique experiences for the art lover in your life. New for '22.

THE STUDIO & GALLERY

If you are in Hove why not visit the gallery? I am open by appointment in the winter months but am usually there painting during the week so feel free to drop me a line and come in for a cuppa.

 

ABOUT THE GALLERY

I established the gallery, then FOUR-WALLS, in 2000 as a vehicle for representing artist friends and colleagues who were in the early years of their careers. I still work closely with many of those - now well-established - artists, and regularly add new talent to the portfolio.

As a trained and practicing artist, I have spent most of my working life in art studios and with other creatives. It brings me joy to visit the artists I work with and see what magic they have been creating.  During these visits, I learn about their motivations and inspirations and we plan new projects together.


Collections are launched in Spring and Autumn. You can preview the current collections and see the studios via The Artists pages. To purchase works visit The Online Shop or The Studio & Gallery in Hove. We can arrange virtual viewings too. It's a great way to talk about your requirements, connect with the work, and get a better idea of how it would look in your home.  

For news and sneaky peaks of artworks before we exhibit them please follow larabowen.contemporary on instagram or subscribe to the mailing list at the bottom.

I hope you enjoy exploring the site and find something to fall in love with. Thank you for visiting.   Lara x

HIGHLIGHTS

Things to wet your appetite this month

 

NEW ARRIVALS

I have a gorgeous collection of new paintings by Becky Blair coming in this month.

These large-scale canvases feature her unique motifs and trademark gloriously bold colour palettes in fresh, abstract compositions.

Find out more on Becky's page.

KATE HENDERSON

I love how Kate's tactile abstract forms refract light and bring personality to my gallery.

This gathering is currently on display alongside two stunning wood sculptures. All pieces are available via the shop.

 

COLOUR CONVERSATIONS

Following on from my Lockdown colour chart project, my studio time has been taken up getting lost in these large-scale abstacts.

Using the emotions attached to colour as a starting point I play with subtle shifts in pigment and tone with the aim of creating pieces that make you feel rather than think.

RE HUNG

I am working on a new section featuring contemporary works that have re-entered the marketplace. Such as this stunning oil and gold leaf on canvas by Joanna Charlotte. 


Whether the previous owner has relocated, downsized, or simply fancies a change, these pieces are in perfect condition and newly available.

 

STUDIO VISITS

I love a visit to one of my artist colleagues studios and thought you might too. If so why not explore the new 'Studios' sections on individual artists' pages.
