John Plowman is an artist whose practice encompasses both studio and curatorial activity through which he explores his interest in the production of art and the site(s) of its production and exhibition, exhibiting in and curating one person and group exhibitions in this country and abroad. His work includes sculpture, installation, performance and drawing exploring the dynamic between two and three dimensions,the made and the yet to be made. Drawing is a key element of his art practice that, at various times, has been visible by its presence as much as by its absence.
Place as Object as Material
His current sculptural practice adopts a Geo-Autobiographical approach, locating a personal memory to a particular place, that suggests, in turn, an association with a particular object and a particular material. Producing sculpture that, individually and collectively, embody a personal narrative linked, albeit sometimes tangentially, by the relationship between place, object and material.
