Mark Bowles was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and studied at California College of Arts & Crafts. He recalls painting all his life. Bowles cares about texture in his work, whether a still life, human figure, or landscape.
He characterises his process as addressing canvases with directness and honesty. Their impressive scale accommodates this. As time passes his work becomes gradually less representational to more abstract—a consequence of placing no boundaries on his subject matter, he explains.
Bowles’s work is collected and exhibited across the United States.
