• Derek Cowie

The paintings of Derek Cowie have long been suffused with a surrealist sensibility and a preoccupation with eco dystopian realities and speculative fiction. Sadly those alternate environmental realities are no longer abstract, but startlingly real and material. Cowie’s recent series of paintings and peculiar constructions explore the catastrophic plight of our natural environment and the ramifications for future generations with a new urgency.
