is a Pennsylvania-native painter. He creates ethereal narrative settings with idiosyncratic characters that look straight out of old poetic literature. Upon first glance, Bowers’ works seems to take you back to period of painting long gone. This is due to Bowers method of painting, which is reminiscent of the Old Masters, specifically the 17th Century Dutch. He has studied the masters for many years to develop his techniques, which involves multiple layers of paint and alla prima. The technique might be old, but his paintings incorporate modern themes and current symbolism, which he describes as “realism with an edge.”
