Mark Bowles: Time

September 4 through October 19

Mark Bowles’ paintings are subjective, simple and filled with light and color, a harmonious balance between the Western landscape and his passion for abstraction. His landscapes are individual statements that have emerged from a rich tradition of California landscape painting. The large scale results in a vast visual picture plane with bold areas of color intermingled with subtle painterly areas. The reward for the viewer is resonating landscapes whose color and expressive brushwork evoke a vibrant sense of place.
