Preview: “Dark Matters” Featuring Robert Bowen, Caitlin Hackett and Dave Correia

by Nastia Voynovskaya Posted on 

 


Robert Bowen

There’s something intrinsically horrifying about seeing the familiar mutated, spliced and perverted. Caitlin HackettRobert Bowen and Dave Correia’s work certainly has this shock factor in common. The three artists, who are showing together in “Dark Matters” at San Francisco’s Bash Contemporary on May 31, look to nature as their inspiration. But rather than depicting butterflies and daisies, their work collectively alludes to a world that’s been polluted, mined, stripped of its forests and impregnated with nuclear waste.

Hackett’s watercolor and pencil works on paper feature swamp creatures with multiple limbs and eyes traversing through an environment that looks nearly uninhabitable. Bowen’s work ruminates on the fusion of technology and nature with his arsenal of animal-machine hybrids. Meanwhile, Correia’s oil paintings envelope animal and human characters in a viscous, textured coating of acidic colors. Take a look at our preview of the show below.

3 new 8×10 prints!


I have 3 new 8×10 mini prints of some old friends now up on my store page.

The return of Spring and the Ladybugs! New Biology Coccinellidae 2 print.


Spring is here, and the Ladybugs are back!
The scientific name Coccinellidae, meaning “little red sphere” can be quite a mouthful, but by whatever name you call them, Ladybugs are well known and well loved all over the Earth. Nearly 400 species of Ladybugs live in North America, and there are nearly 5,000 species worldwide. Also commonly known as the Lady Beetle or Ladybird Beetle, the name of these insects reflects the global admiration of mankind. Widely considered to be good luck, Ladybugs are a bit clumsy, though efficient enough, fliers. Their transparent sheath-wings (hidden from view under the outer wing cases, until they take to the air) flutter at a rate of 85 beats per second. I have taken the liberty of helping them out with there lack of airborne grace, giving them a “New Biology”,  making it easier to bring you the good luck they share.
New Biology Coccinellidae print is 17×17″, $50. Printed with archival inks on acid free velvet cotton rag paper and a limited edition of 50. Each print is hand signed and numbered, available on the store page.

AND as a special little spring time bonus, from now ’til April 1st spend $45 and up and receive and 8×10 version of my first Ladybug print shown below.

Happy Springtime! I’m off to get some allergy medicine!
