Momentum Artist: Zia Bowles

Zia Bowles, Tulsa
Diptych with Donuts
Q: What was your concept behind your work?
ZB: The concept behind this picture was to use two completely different images in one painting and yet still give it a sense of symmetry. The painting itself doesn't make much sense, and isn't supposed to, but the colors connect the two images in a way the images themselves don't.

Momentum Tulsa 2009 includes visual art by artists aged 30 and younger. The exhibition is free and open at Living Arts, 307 E Brady, Tulsa, until October 24. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Sunday 1-5 pm, until 9 pm on Thursday and Friday.

Curators Scott Perkins & Frank Wick selected 93 artworks by 66 artists from all over the state for the exhibition. Also, three Spotlight artists created bodies of work on display, Nick Bayer, Dustin Boise, and Emily Kern. Intern Ashley Romano interviewed the artists to learn about their creative process. Watch for more profiles throughout the run of the exhibition.
