Paul Bowen

(1951-

 

Paul Bowen


Portrait by Norma Holt.

Paul Bowen



Bowen, who came from Wales as a fellow at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, derives his mari-time images from his Welsh heritage (fishermen’s tar-covered skin coracles with their slender wooden frames) and his Cape Cod present (he has been resident in Provincetown from 1977 to 2005) with lapstrake dories, fishing boats and boxes. He has melded the essences of these two places into his sculptural cosmos--using the finely planed slats of old fish crates in a conjunction with tar and simple bindings to create forms that are as personal as they are redolent of the sea, fishermen or the rivers of his native heath.
