Shane Bowden: “Australian Shane Bowden is a multi-faceted modern artist creating his oeuvre in paintings and prints reminiscent of such pop icons as Warhol, Koons, and Hirst,” notes The Gallery’s website. “Currently, Bowden has developed 6 separate collections of work, delineated by genre to captivate individual tastes. Examples of such genres are graffiti, figure realism, abstract expressionism, and black & white print. Directed by an alter ego for each collection, Bowden has adopted various personas to fully explore the potential of each style that peaks his interest.”
Timothy Raines: “The vibrancy envisioned in a Timothy Raines painting parallels its real life counterpart,” The Gallery notes. “Luxury is the essence of his compositions, capturing movement and energy through color and shape. Many major brands and organizations depend on his skilled hand to promote their modern image. Athletics, automobiles, emblems, landscapes; Raines explores these subjects all through his iconic drops of paint, inspired by the controlled chaos of his technique that both represents and redefines distinctive style.”
Ari Robinson: “Ari Robinson is an installation and collage artist who currently resides in St. Petersburg, Florida. Her work is approached by a creative execution driven by process and spontaneity; focused on form, color, and energy. Informed with an intuitive sense of color and space, she then establishes the direction of each piece, whether it be a sight specific installation or collaged painting, layer by layer until the work feels grounded with a sense of fluidity. Color is a very important component in her works as it has the ability to evoke feelings of something transcendent or suggest a transcendent space. Some of her clients/press include: Georges Dubouef (Quintissential Wines), Nikki Beach Miami, Tampa Bay Times, and Packaging of the World.”
