John Bowers, Omaha Member Since May 2012 Artist Statement My art is a narrative in a colorful, simplistic style. I go directly at the feeling using the fewest possible lines and forms, much as the fashion trend of color blocking does today. In my works that have separation lines, each side of the line rarely mirrors the other. They are used to convey low energy, such as in " Placid" or dynamic and turbulent lines as in "Tornado Alley". Most of my photos are taken with my Pentax medium format camera. Aside from waiting a week or two for film processing to see the results, the film and format provide a lot of picture data and the camera was still versatile enough to film the '94 Monaco GP.
