Celebrating Dean Bowen’s child-like exuberance | The Canberra Times

Stephens characterizes the sculptures of Bowen through their stillness. Describing one of Bowen’s sculptures, he writes, “An enormous feline stands still and alert, projecting an air of concentrated focus. The lion-sized animal is not on the prowl, or a hunt. It is merely there in the world, its presence.” quiet and respectful. Happiness – contentment with what is happening – manifests in the here and now, evidenced by this benign, elongated animal. It is titled, simply, cat (2012). Unweighted by any forceful allegory, this creature is precisely what it appears to be. And that is more than enough: wholly being in this moment.”
