New Work - Painting

Sikelela Owen

James Freeman presents an exhibition of new paintings by the British painter Sikelela Owen following her recent shortlisting for the John Moores Painting Prize 2021.

Sikelela Owen is a young black British artist who graduated from the Royal Academy School in 2012. She paints domestic scenes with a fluid gestural style, on the one hand impressionistic and informed by the history of painting, whilst also being disarmingly intimate and sincere. It is painting about closeness, of family and familiarity, as an antidote to the myriad conflicts of a fragmented society.
