Douglas Chowns


Douglas Chowns' prints are full of the recollected emotions of a long and adventurous life which has taken him from Britain, where he was born, to Spain, Portugal, Latin America and the Caribbean combined with the years he has spent amid the still largely unspoilt natural beauty of New Zealand. Chowns' paintings are as much subjective as they are representational. They are an embodiment of Chowns' strong feelings about the world and about his own situation in it. Everything Douglas has experienced plays a part - pride in his Celtic heritage, time spent growing up in Bushey near London (then still an artists' colony), the natural beauty of New Zealand and the violence of contemporary world events. Nothing is done to formula; everything comes from the heart. New Zealand Fine Prints stock all four limited edition prints by Douglas Chowns.
