Jack began working in clay with his grandmother in early grade school. That got him hooked on making art and led him to many art teachers including sculpture classes with Octavio Medellin in Dallas in the early 70s and on to an MFA with honors from San Francisco Art Institute in 1984. These days he is focused on making work that gets to the nature of the human condition and how our own way of looking tends to shape what we see in the world.
The philosophy of perspectivism holds that we tend to bring our own established, automatic and persistent way of looking at the world with any visual encounter. The upcoming exhibition at Art Center Waco provides viewers an opportunity to be surprised by their own interpretation of what they see in the art that is presented. Perspectivism is a show of new art by Jack Bowers and a review of his older works. Perspectivism opens September 1, 2022 and will run through November 5, 2022.
