Stan Bowman

I grew up in California, USA, received a BA in Architecture in 1964, and a MFA in photography from the University of New Mexico in 1973. Following graduation I was appointed as a professor at Cornell University in the Art Department where I taught photography and digital imaging for almost 30 years. In 1999 I retired to pursue my career as an artist full time.

My works have been exhibited nationally and internationally for over 40 years as a photographer, painter, and digital artist. My artwork is in such collections as the San Francisco Museum of Art, Bibiliotech National in Paris, German Photographic Society, and many other locations.

I consider myself currently to be a digital montage artist as I assemble images digitally. Sometimes I use photo’s and sometimes I create in a program on the computer from scratch. I have used a flatbed scanner extensively to scan objects digitally with high resolutions into a computer where I enhance their visual characteristics. I then digitally collage and layer these scans in Adobe Photoshop, adding, altering and collaging for emphasis and interest. Recently I have been creating shaped artworks composed of layers of ink jet giclee prints on canvas, sometimes stretched on wood frames and more recently glued down on a new plastic sheeting material.

Media, sizes and prices vary. Please contact me for details.

"Hot Stack" 2018. A painting/sculpture.

Stan's work was shown in “Spirit, Dreams, Invention,” a three-person show in July, 2018, featuring his work, as well as the sculptures of Mary Ann Bowman and the photo/video installation of Jan Kather. Stan imagines bright colors, unusual shapes, exciting textures and then thinks of the multitude of abstract art works he will create during the day.
