Robert Bowen’s (Featured) creative mechanical, often otherworldly insects and various creatures will be on full display in his upcoming solo show, “Blasphemous Nature" which opens at Fifty 24PDX Gallery in Portland, Oregon on Thursday, August 7th. I’ve had a few chances to see Bowen’s work in person and it’s always a great adventure to look at as not only are the paintings beautiful but they really fill your mind with what-if’s.
