About B. D. Owens

 

Bio
I am a visual artist and poet based in Scotland. In September 2017, I completed the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design MFA Programme in Art, Society & Publics , With Distinction. I studied sculpture at Concordia University, in Montreal, gaining a BFA in Sculpture, With Great Distinction. I also earned a BA in Technical & Production Arts from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. I have shown my work in several group shows in Montreal, Glasgow and at MIX NYC 2012, in Brooklyn, New York. I currently serve on the Executive of the Scottish Artists Union.

Statement of Practice
I develop my conceptual ideas while walking and writing. Text, multi- layered interpretation and language-play are threads that run through my work. I use materials for their semiotic value, particularly in terms of historical and cultural context. Currently, I am examining and challenging the binary doctrines of: winners & losers; finding & losing; and sameness & difference.
