Richard Gowland

Richard Gowland is a UK-based contemporary artist specialising in paintings imbued with psychological drama. Of particular interest is the depiction of conflict and the devastating consequences of war.


In the Psychosis series, the creation of each piece involves carefully researched subject matter, which is then expressed through strong use of colour and numerous layers of luminous oil paint to achieve intensity and realism. Gowland’s aim is to portray people going through traumatic events with dignity and even beauty.
