Jean Lowe: Lost Time

Jean Lowe: Lost Time

OPENING RECEPTION: FRIDAY, JUNE 17, 6:30-8:30 PM

Through the “pages” taken from imagined ephemera auction catalogs, the work in Lost Time is a circuitous and humorous musing on the themes of aging, perception and the construction of value. 

The “catalog” images (ink jet on poly metal) combine photography of both real and handmade realistic objects with digitally generated imagery with the intent of keeping the viewer on an uneven keel. The formal dissonance mirrors that of the content: newspaper clippings, a collection of driver’s licenses, a psychiatrist’s patient notes and poetry snippets are all presented for auction with descriptive text and price estimates.

 

Whether a preoccupation with youthful elixirs, or a preoccupation  with amassing an idiosyncratic collection of ephemera, these works--themselves an idiosyncratic collection--strive to look at the myriad buffers we construct in order to avoid the act of deeply looking at our lives.

 

A graduate from UC Berkeley, Lowe  has shown at Gracie Mansion, Holly Solomon, and McKenzie galleries in New York, as well as at Quint Gallery and the California Center for the Arts Museum in Escondido locally. In 2000 Lowe exhibited Books and Ideas in an Age of Anxiety: Selections from the Annex at the Athenaeum.
