ALEX LOWERY is celebrated for the distilled clarity of his compositions. His mastery of oil paint distracts the viewer from the strength of drawing in his work. Fascinating then for all who know and love his work, to see the power of these drawings in pencil and gouache and, more recently, in full-size acrylic. Lowery’s unique poetic vision is unmistakeably here in these works expressed in tonal differences, hatched lines and waterbased paints. The daring and brilliantly observed planes of colour are fully resolved expressing shadow, form and light in breath-taking combinations.
Born 1957 in London, Alex Lowery studied at Bath Academy, Sir John Cass School of Art and the Central School of Art in London. He has painted and shown regularly in Dorset and London since 1994. He exhibited for many years with Art First in London and has shown at the Estorick Collection and at Browse and Darby. His work is in many distinguished private collections as well as the Dorset County Hospital Art Collection, Great Ormond Street Hospital, St George’s Hospital Tooting and the Fidelity International Art Collection. He lives in Charmouth with the artist Vanessa Gardiner.
