About the Artwork

Dowell is a Professor of Printmaking at Temple University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Critics have described Dowell’s imagery as musical because his arrangement of delicate calligraphic lines on a large blank page resembles a musical score. Dowell has actually developed improvisational musical performances using his prints as inspiration and as a point of departure.
