Craighead Green Gallery is proud to present a three-artist exhibition by gallery artists Rich Bowman, Gregg Coker and Winston Lee Mascarenhas.
A Midwest native, Bowman’s abstracted paintings are colorful and full of energy, capturing the moment that is so familiar to anyone that has observed a sunset full of color and mystery. These paintings are all from Bowman’s memory and each painting reveals an untold story. Bowman states that “The open field, river valleys and ever-changing sky….where they meet and become one are the source of my inspiration. That familiar, silent place has always drawn me in.” Bowman received his Bachelor of Fine Arts, Kansas City Art Institute, May 1991.
Texas native Gregg Coker is presenting new works of mixed media on canvas, paper and Mylar. Coker has traveled extensively and has lived in Thailand, India, and Mexico City. He attended SMU and received his BFA with an emphasis on printmaking. Soon after this he attended the University of Pennsylvania where he received his MFA in painting. Coker studies forms wax and plaster casts, which are viewed in relationship to the space around the object. Coker’s concern about the distance between the viewer’s eye and the surface of his paintings explains the intentional detail that draws the viewer close to his work. Coker comments that “I am concerned with the vastness within the painting itself. I am interested in the play of scale and the sensation of weight and tension in my work”.
Winston Lee Mascarenhas, a Dallas resident of many years, works in encaustics. Encaustic is a wax based paint (composed of beeswax, resin and pigment), that is kept molten on a heated palette. It is applied to a porous surface and then reheated in order to fuse the paint. As stated by the artist “With my recent work, I continue to explore color and composition through building up layers, carving, and even adding collage elements. I find inspiration in the act of play and liberation in the slow encaustic process. Again and again, I return to the structure of the grid set against the freedom of the gestural mark in creating my bas-relief encaustic works.” In 2011 Mascarenhas completed a residency at Vermont Studio Center, VT.
