American Art and Architecture | Painting
Gary Bowling’s paintings are stunning explorations of light and shadow upon the rich, natural settings of the Midwest. His landscapes evoke a transitory moment as the light hits the field or as the atmosphere changes, ever so slightly, when the day turns to dusk. Bowling has long felt a strong emotional connection with the land. His paintings deeply examine the peaceful solitude found within the rural landscape and how these views and vistas can be incredibly personal.
