Robert Dowling announced the Upcoming show titled "Winterland"
Robert Dowling's preternatural and extraordinary paintings have grabbed the attention of the art world with their dark, hidden and layered meanings - creating a fluid world of planning, chaos, change, and emotion. One of a separate reality - where dreams, childhood, and imagination may seem all too real. Robert incorporates his life, memories, dreams, and childhood in his work. It is clear that his uniquely original art is vital and the very core of himself: "Every painting I do, I create as if it is the last thing that I will ever do, the last thing people will see from my own thoughts - my last voice."

Dowling Jr has always been regarded an art prodigy; even in the first grade it was apparent that Robert had elemental artistic and imaginative aptitudes unlike other children in his age group.

Robert Dowling resides in Maine, living in a small dilapidated cabin on the shores of Hermon Pond where he dedicates his life to the arts. Dowlings dedication and drive to create his unique art says it all: "I would rather fail as an artist, than succeed as anything else."
