Unnatural Selection, Solo Art Show by Robert Bowen at Zerofriends

Lucky Strike #12 Humboldt Burning by Robert Bowen

The Unnatural Selection solo art show by San Francisco artist Robert Bowen (aka “bowenstuff“) at Zerofriends will feature an awesome collection of his new original and “unnatural” paintings. The opening reception for Robert’s solo show is on Saturday, December 8, 2012 from 5 to 8 PM. His work will be on display throughout the month of December at the Zerofriends Gallery in Oakland, California.

This series of paintings is a bit of a departure from some of my pop-culture driven images of the past. (Not to say I won’t return to that, but this is where I am at for the moment. I see both plaguing my future.) All the paintings in this show are of an animal nature, depicting birds, insects and sea life, several of which are from my Lucky Strike series that combines animals with mechanical elements or engine parts. There is a certain tragic beauty about these malfunctioning hybrid creatures, and I cannot look away. They are a constant source of inspiration.
