About this work: 'Magnificent Idler is entitled after Lin Yutang's theory of the magnificent idler or scamp who approaches life with ease, humour and a happy-go-lucky mentality. I was working on this painting, playing with colours and some collage, when a small work on paper fell onto this piece exactly where it is now. I thought that this was a happy accident, a great trick I could use to finally complete the painting. I felt like a true scamp!' Ronan Bowes
Bowes creates abstract paintings, objects and mixed media pieces drawing inspiration from his own experiences and reflections on society. His works on paper have always had a special place in his overall work as they are his most spontaneous, immediate, and intuitive art through which he ‘decompresses’ his creative energy and ideas.
