Playing with Monotypes
Sunday April 27, 2014 - 11:30am to 4:30am
This exhibition brings attention to a unique component of Jane LowBeer’s art practice, which focuses on interactive constructions, combining monotype scrolls on Japanese paper, plexiglass, wood boxes, and found objects. These elements combine to tell a story, essentially a visual poem, creating through their particular tableau an intimate relationship with the viewer. LowBeer’s work references the ancient practice of keeping texts in scroll format but develops a very contemporary edge by incorporating both found and drawn components. Each turn of the crank reveals a different composition, the layering of elements creating.
LowBeer bases her art practice in Keene and Toronto and has been part of the Kawartha Autumn Studio Tour. She is well known for her large scale monotypes, which explore still life compositions of ubiquitous common objects. LowBeer is a member of Loop Gallery in Toronto. Her works are included in private and public collections including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and Bibliothèque national de France in Paris.
