In the first in a new series of Online Pop-Up Shows we’re excited to present JONATHAN COWAN - SPRING HAS COME AGAIN. The gallery is expanding from our globally recognized photographic platform. With this series we invite our followers to explore curated works that, often as not, venture into other media. 
Jonathan Cowan’s watercolors evoke traditions like botanical illustration and early color theory diagrams, offering a sense of connection to perennial themes that reach far back into time. These works embody the quintessential elements of springtime: we see energy radiating from the sky, beckoning bulbs to open up and send stemmed flowers skyward. Like the season itself Cowan’s pictures offer a sense of beauty, vitality, and surprise.

“Spring has come again. The Earth
is like a child that knows poems by heart,
many, o so many . . . . For the hardship
of such long learning she receives the prize.”

 -Rainer Maria Rilke, Sonnets to Orpheus, XXI (First Part), 1922
