We hope you will join us.
Johan Lowie grew up in Ypres, Belgium and speaks English, French, Dutch–a polyglot of romantic influences. Lowie received a BFA in Plastic Arts (1979) from Kortryk Institute of Technology and an MFA in Painting (1983) from KASK, the Royal Academy of Arts in Ghent. Johan has lived in Fredrick County, Maryland since the mid 90’s where currently works as a full time artist from his studio in The Griffin Art Center.
Lowie’s decades of creative work evoke deep, unsettled feelings that come from the frisson of life experiences churning directly against interior wheels of emotion. His images present experience and observation transformed by contemplation. Where a superficial review of his work might determine it to be purely surreal, longer exposure suggests deeply emotional, honest explorations about how we remember our own feelings as we accumulate experience through life.
Lowie’s paintings are sought after by collectors across the US and Europe.
This exhibit features 40 original pieces, of which 31 were created in 2020.Learn More
