Celebrating Dean Bowen’s Childish Exuberance | The Canberra Times

Stephens characterizes Bowen’s sculptures by their stillness. Describing one of Bowen’s sculptures, he writes, “A huge cat stands still and alert, radiating an air of concentrated focus. The lion-sized animal is not hunting or hunting. It’s just out there in the world, its presence calm and respectful Happiness – satisfaction with what is happening – manifests itself in the here and now, evidenced by this benign, elongated animal It is titled, simple, Cat (2012). Unweighted by any powerful allegory, this creature is exactly what it appears to be. And that’s more than enough: being completely in this moment.”
