|Sir Richard Sheridan Patrick Michael Aloysius Franklin Bowling OBE RA, known as Frank Bowling,|
(b. 1934), ca 1969 New York, British artist, born in Guyana, working in New York and London
There's a soul at work here. Technically and intellectually an extremely powerful one. Bowling's canvasses up close are a marvel. Intense, layered, complex, beautiful. Fluid and not the least bit labored. To Ciwt's eye, Bowling's work is head and shoulders above many of the now famous artists working in New York at the time. He's not just expressing himself deeply, brilliantly, with great aliveness and drama, Bowling is expanding the range of what paint can do.
Bowling has been knighted and is considered one of the greatest living British abstract painters. Why haven't we seen more of him over here in the States over the years?
