Arwen Flowers describes the Auckland’s West Coast and Waitakere Ranges where she grew up as strong visual and emotional influences in her art.
Arwen studied at the University of Auckland's Elam School of Fine Arts to gain a Bachelor of Fine Arts before developing a flexible approach to her work using painting, printmaking, other mixed-media, and photography to create unique works of art while juggling family and working as a graphic designer.
Arwen's work examines life and the environment; its borders and in-between places, changes of state - physical, ephemeral. These narratives are explored through the use of colour, texture and line.
During an artist residency in Piha 2016, Arwen chose to explore an alternative photographic process combined with monotype printmaking to create a visual record of the natural environment in the surrounding area. That work on paper, the materials Arwen uses, and the themes of collecting and environmentailism lead to a new collection of artworks showcased in her 2018 solo exhibition at Quirky Fox 'The Undiscovery Question'.
