Adopting a practice akin to a monk or martial artist, Gnat Bowden embodies, resists and critiques with a researched abandon. With steel-like concepts wrapped in the warm blanket of nostalgia Bowden converses and supplants the American aesthetic of brutality. Much like climbing a mountain, both in journey and in summit.

-Ian Carstens
