San Francisco

Geoffrey Bowman

David Cole Gallery

Jewel-toned amoebic shapes in infinite variety, floating in and through translucent glowing space, alternately tiring and refreshing the eye and the senses. Bowman is one of those loners in Bay Area art, and since there is no one pushing him in his own mode of expression, one wonders if his work will become ingrown. Certainly his particles and cells have divided about as far as they can go without dissolution, but the process furnishes endless entertainment and the results are worth the risk. Cole shows Bowman to special advantage, selecting and presenting his work sparingly and dispensing it carefully to loan-exhibits.
