Bronze Sculpture Dean Bowen Dean Bowen, Bronze Sculpture, documents some of the sculptural highlights of this Australian artist's thirty plus year career. This is the first time that a publication has been dedicated exclusively to the artists bronze sculpture.
This interactive eBook developed specifically for the iPad is richly illustrated with over forty photographs of the artist's critically acclaimed sculptural works, including recent bronze sculpture commissions, extensive exhibition and collection details as well as an essay by leading arts writer Louise Bellamy.
Citing major influences as the art of French painter, Jean Dubuffet, who embraced the art of children, the humour of Spanish sculptor, Joan Miro, and the stick-like figures of Swiss artist, Alberto Giacometti, Bowen is also drawn to the work of naive artists, untrained artists and the drawings of children.
Bowen's three-dimensional bronzes are fuelled by the influences of his childhood culminating in the creation of a contemporary world viewed through uniquely humorous, imaginative - and considered - eyes.
