Chromarray: Works by Constance Lowe

April 6 - May 28, 2018



The Hawn Gallery presents Chromarray, work by San Antonio-based artist Constance Lowe, featuring works from her Garden City (Air to Ground) and FabCom and Chromarray series.Lowe’s work examines the intersection between nature and humans’ built environments, with a special focus on biology, mathematics, psychology and agriculture. Lowe’s most recent series, Garden City (Air to Ground) (2015) takes its inspiration from circular and gridded NASA satellite photos of Midwestern fields. The landscapes contain personal connotations to Lowe as they represent land once owned by her family. Lowe uses a range of materials in her work such as dyed calfskin, wool, felt, translucent drafting film, and photographic reproductions of nature. Lowe’s blending of natural and synthetic materials reveal how nature can be manufactured and our constructed world made to appear naturally occurring. These pieces reveal the social implications of human being’s dissonance from nature.
