Becca Lowry’s wall-hung sculptures are carved from assemblages of laminated plywood and heavily ornamented in mixed media. Largely biomorphic in form, the works draw language from both the natural world (mimicking the aposematic markings and structural coloration of flora and fauna) as well as from the rich inheritance of decorative patterning made by artisans for millennia. The works derive from a need for physical exertion, a desire to build, and a curiosity about the talismanic capacity of objects: to protect, to store memory/history, to embody incantations.
Becca’s work has been exhibited in New York at Art Miami, Select Fair, Volta, and Greene Naftali and in Los Angeles at Klowden Mann. Her work has been featured in New American Paintings, reviewed in Artforum, and is part of the collection at Gateway Community College in New Haven, CT. Becca studied Economics at Smith College and lives in Connecticut with her wife and young son.
