" I always feel like a ghost rushing through this reality. . ." (Reiner Heidorn)

Through early March, Bill Lowe Gallery presents a sweeping variation of principal works by the gallery's celebrated international stable of artists. These works range from the extremes of meditative minimalism to the cinematic narratives depicting life in cultures around the world.

This collection introduces to the North American market monumental works by German master, Reiner Heidorn. Heidorn thunders to the forefront of innovative artistic practice, painting rooted in the highest classical traditions - amplified to epic new dimensions by a cornucopia of pictorial devices that at once identify him as one of the greatest artists of our time. A one-man show of Reiner's works will be presented in the Spring of 2017.

The gallery juxtaposes the work of this creative impresario with the works of artistic giant Thornton Dial, whose works will soon be featured in exhibitions at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, San Francisco's De Young Museum of Art and at Bill Lowe Gallery. Featured in this presentation of Dial's work are premiere examples of his magisterial assemblages that, in the words of critic/historian John Beardsley reflect Dial's commitment to "making it his business as an artist to be a historian; he lived history, then he represented it." These works span a time period of nearly 30 years, from 1988 to 2015.

Also on exhibit at this time are recent works by highly acclaimed artists working in a myriad of techniques, and media that articulate the gallery's three-decade commitment to an exploration of the sensual surface. These works range from the lush photo-encaustic images of iconic Atlanta artist - Maggie Hasbrouck,, carved and painted black granite sculptures in relief by South Korean - Jung Kwang Sik, the expressionistically rendered post-twentieth century neon florals by Canadian - Thrush Holmes, to works by artists from Portugal, Egypt and India to Japan, Argentina and Colombia.



 

 

 


“For art to be great it must seem a spontaneous product of nature, born not willed; and for this to happen genius is necessary, an original power freed from the restraint of inherited rules.”                                                                                                                        (Immanuel Kant)

The philosophical architecture of Bill Lowe Gallery is built upon a reverence for the alchemical nature of artistic expression. Our vision honors the profoundly spiritual nature of visual language and the role it can play in affecting paradigm shifts at both a personal and societal level.

It is with this recognition that we have assembled a world-class stable of artists who intuitively have their fingers on the pulse of the Universe. Their expression is not an ironic or satirical look at the human condition. Instead, the gallery’s program presents powerful, content-driven works that utilize technical mastery and a visual eloquence to transform the human heart and soul at intimate levels.

For our collectors, the gallery is an oasis of beauty. Of civility. Of contemplation. This is coupled with a dynamism informed by a world view rooted in metaphysics, spirituality, philosophy, psychology and biology. Bill Lowe Gallery is a transformative experience that forever enlightens those who experience it. The gallery facilitates interaction between a broad cross-section of our community with an exotic array of artistic voices and languages to amplify and expand an unfolding cultural conversation.

Bill Lowe Gallery has become an institution in our region. We are widely considered the pre-eminent contemporary art gallery in the Southern United States. Our long presence in Los Angeles has fueled a kinetic dialogue between the East and West coasts. We approach the next decade of our mandate with clarity, commitment and excitement.
