Dean Bowen: Menagerie

November 26 - December 10

Dean Bowen, Sunny, 2022, oil on board, 38 x 56cm. 

Describing the imagery that populates his current solo show with Anthea Polson Art, Dean Bowen imparts, “The feathered characters in my avian theatre have players who engage and interact with them. Ladybird armies seem to make regular appearances – are they friends or perhaps dinner for their feathered companions? Echidnas (another of my favourite totems) inhabit this exhibition alongside wombats, owls, kookaburras and other creatures. They are all performers in a wondrous menagerie.” As in early cultures where imagination and reality intertwined, Bowen’s art expresses a sense of kinship between the animal, human and natural worlds. Deceptively simple in rendition, the works have subtle underlying implications. Although referencing ecological concerns, a quiet optimism pervades, there is a humour that the artist hopes will provide amusement for the viewer.

Opening Event: Saturday 26 November 2022, 4-6pm.
