poster for Roy Dowell Exhibition

This event has ended.

Roy Dowell possesses the unique ability to incorporate fragments of diverse textures and shapes to utilize various dialects of abstraction. Using a configuration of seemingly simple elements, Dowell combines patterns and identifiable images, producing assorted linear kaleidoscopes and electrifying motifs. Geometric silhouettes create elaborate asymmetrical designs, while Dowell’s precision and compositional intention remains visible. Zigzags, pinwheels, and dots, overlap across the textured canvas, creating organic diagrams intended to be decoded.

Dowell’s use of everyday imagery urges viewers to form an identifiable connection to the painting, all while bringing their own context to the artist’s untitled works. This quality gives Dowell’s works a distinct sense of intimacy. Amy Gerstler remarks, “As meditation aids, I believe these paintings are meant to throw us back into long-ago associations, impressions, exuberances, and depths from which we first formed our relationship with shapes, colors, thought forms, and letter forms.”
