Zillah Bowes

Zillah is a Welsh/English multi-disciplinary artist with a practice in film, photography, poetry and sculpture. Her work often explores the relationship between the individual and the natural environment. Her ongoing connection to nature informs her practice across all mediums.

With a spiritual enquiry around climate change and biodiversity, Zillah’s work has recently moved towards a broader interdisciplinary practice utilising installation, sound and found objects, among others. Recent work uses moonlight – neither darkness or light – to examine human and plant life and the transition between them, and explores plant-human connection. 

Zillah has won several recent awards for her work including the British Journal of Photography International Photography Award and National Museum Wales Purchase Prize. She has undertaken residencies with Jerwood Arts, Cove Park and Hypha Studios among others, and was selected for FLAMIN/Film London’s Pave Your Path in 2023.
