About Ross

Ross Bowns was educated at California State University in Sacramento and Academy of Art University in San Francisco, where he received an MFA in Figurative Painting in 2009.

His paintings are inspired by vagueness and the deficiencies he finds in interpretations of our experiences. His work explores the fragmented nature of perception, in which there is an inherent incompleteness, and particularly that interplay between our internal conditions and the nature of perception that shapes all we encounter.

Bowns aims to capture in his work a conversation between event, perception, and condition. He focuses on ways in which perception obscures, distorts, excludes, and manufactures the details of our experiences. Most recently, he has chosen the human form as a medium through which to explore perception.

His work has been exhibited across the United States. In 2010 he won second place in the The Figure Now Exhibition at the FontBonne Fine Arts Gallery in St. Louis.
