Leipzig-born painter Uwe Kowski (born 1963) creates colorful abstractions in which gestural lines blur into jumbles of typography (the latter perhaps influenced by his apprenticeship as a sign painter), establishing a vibrant, “all-over” effect. This volume presents new canvases made between 2008 and 2011.

The uncommonly rich paintings and watercolors of Berlin-based Uwe Kowski (born in 1963 in Leipzig) walk a fine line between abstraction and representation. They are delicate, complex compositions whose layers of paint can hide written words or any of many art-historical references, from the Impressionists to Jasper Johns.
