Alex Lowery’s use of colour, his juxtaposition of solid land, regular buildings and street furniture with infinite translucent skies and water have more of the sublime in them than he acknowledges. Daring unexpected combinations feel deeply satisfying. His colours and all aspects of his paintings stem from observation, relating back to the real world as he has seen it. Unpeopled, but full of the evidence of people, these intriguing paintings play in the mind. They are structured to take the eye on an exploratory route around and through the image, contrasting foreground to background, the present to the infinite. Taking transitional edgy places and throwing radiant light on them, Alex Lowery’s paintings improvise and abbreviate to find and capture something exceptional.
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 exhibitied 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.
