Lowell Boyers: Inscapes
May 4, 2019 @ 10:30 am - June 15, 2019 @ 5:30 pm
May 4 through June 15, 2019
Public Opening Reception: Saturday, May 4, 6:00 to 8:00 pm
Deborah Colton Gallery is pleased to present Inscapes, a solo-exhibition of paintings by artist Lowell Boyers. Inscapes presents a selection of recent works from the artist that investigate and demonstrate parallels between his creative and philosophical practices. The exhibition opens Saturday, May 4th and runs through June 15th, 2019, with a public opening reception on Saturday, May 4th from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.
Lowell states, “I see the creative imagination as a birthright belonging to every being, and my work is fundamentally a textural portrayal of the unfolding blossoming of various stages of awakening to that active nature.” His new work of “Landscapes and Inner Scapes” paintings engages an experimental process of painted discovery that also draws on the artist’s long-term engagement with Buddhist philosophy and practice.
Tom Healy, writer and former Chairman of the Fulbright Board and President of the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, has written that “Boyers’ paintings radiate outward. It’s as if we were witness to the moments following internal combustions, as if Boyers had just broken a barrier between us and some inner world. The surfaces are so liquid that color stains that world, saturates it with brilliance, but never seems to fix it into a rigid image. There is no ground, no sky, no horizon in these paintings. We look through cloud color, breath, vapor toward the glow of some inner space.”
Boyers is a graduate of the prestigious Yale University MFA program and the Rhode Island School of Design (BFA). For 30 years his work has been included in both private and institutional exhibitions in Abu Dhabi, Dallas, Germany, Houston, India, London, Los Angeles, New York, and St. Louis. Lowell Boyers lives and works in New York City.
Deborah Colton Gallery first exhibited Lowell Boyers’ works in 2004, and since then has shown his works in many venues in the United States and as far reaching as Abu Dhabi. This solo exhibit marks the fifth solo exhibition that Deborah Colton Galley has sponsored for Boyers, and the gallery has been successful in placing his work in many important collections.
Deborah Colton Gallery is founded on being an innovative showcase for ongoing presentation and promotion of strong historical and visionary contemporary artists world-wide, whose diverse practices include painting, works on paper, sculpture, video, photography, performance, conceptual future media and public space installations. The Gallery aspires to provide a forum through connecting Texas, national and international artists to make positive change.
