I find your art real, raw, emotive, and playful with a profound message. You redefine art but in a style outside labels and boundaries. Your inner workings which fuse with the canvas speak my language. Break all the rules!!!! Your art encourages me to use my imagination.

As Henry Ward Beecher noted, "Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures." ONE ~ If You Look, Will You See?
Robert Dowling presents ONE ~ If You Look, Will You See? at Dowling Studios & Gallery. The exhibition occurs Saturday, April 15th, 5-10 PM EST/ 2-7 PM PST featuring Dowling's extraordinary and surreal paintings. The fine art fantasy paintings of Aaron Horvath, the amazing sculptural world of Chris Knox and the impressionistic painting of ‘Aja’-Ann Deland Apa-Soura will also be displayed. Maine’s own Laurie Jones will make a special guest appearance at ONE, performing original music from her new CD.
ONE will be open to the public and the press at Dowling Studios and Gallery, 407 Main Street, Bangor, Maine. All works of fine art will also be shown live via studio webcam for this exciting international event. ONE will have a specifically created web page just for the exhibition, including live chat and monitors for web cam viewing, information, and sales.
At the core of ONE is the featured, internationally collected artist Robert Dowlings. Dowlings new series of deliciously disturbing, frighteningly brilliant, and extraordinarily innocent ,surreal and abstract paintings are a preview to this artists gift. Dowling provides the viewer with the central motivators for his art, albeit on another level of existence, an existence that continually morphs inside Dowlings fertile mind, a world he attempts to enter through his paintings:
"My paintings depict my fears, repressed anger and frustration from the core of my Imagination. My Dreams and the exploration of my own mind and thinking inspire and intrigue me. I’m inspired by dreams, the grandeur of nature, realizations and mini-epiphanies from listening to the whispering " voices" in my head. I feel compelled to record these moments of my life for future reference. Through my work you will find the paintings have become relentlessly weird, emotional and elegantly strange, This is largely due to changes that are happening in my life. My paintings reflect my dreams, my moods and my life."
Collectors and patrons have praised the unique viewpoint and imagery expressed through Dowlings paintings:
- "A surrealist on the cutting edge, turned in his wand for a palette and brush."
- "Robert harnesses the dark energy coiled within us, summoning it to the canvas."
- "Robert’s art evokes a rich, lucid emotional experience."
- "I find your art real, raw, emotive, and playful with a profound message. You redefine art but in a style outside labels and boundaries. Your inner workings which fuse with the canvas speak my language. Break all the rules!!!! Your art encourages me to use my imagination."
- "Amazingly raw and visceral…art."
