Bruce Mc Gowan’s striking paintings and sculptures are called “Contemporary Baroque,” reinventing a centuries-old sensibility. The artist also cites pop culture, as well as the likes of Robert Williams and Todd Schorr, as formative his development. The artist moves between colored pencil, oils, acrylics, pen, or a combination of these, in crafting these works.
“Safely cradled in the arms of the cartoon characters he was able to draw with his eyes closed by age 5, Bruce has always been an artist,” a statement says. “From Spielberg to Robert Williams, as well as Warhol, Todd Schorr, Rockwell and even Disney, he absorbs contemporary aesthetic trends that are woven together with more classical inspirations. Fascinated by the works of the great masters, Fragonard, Boucher and Bosch, Bruce is striving to reinvent a Baroque aesthetic made for today.”
