After completing an MFA at Indiana University, Lynda Lowe began a teaching career at Wheaton College and Northern Illinois University. She left her academic position and began painting full-time, moving to Washington State where she lives in Gig Harbor on the Puget Sound. The surrounding environment and travels abroad profoundly impact her work. Lowe’s interest in the relationships between art and science, perception and consciousness is evident in her imagery that layers text and poetry fragments, scientific observations and mathematical formula, alongside more familiar recognizable objects. Some her most recent investigations are entirely abstract and develop her intuitive surfaces, mark-making, asemic writing, and open color field.
Lynda Lowe’s artwork has been widely exhibited and collected nationally in galleries and museums. She’s the recipient of numerous grants including two Illinois Arts Council Individual Fellowships, many Arts Resource grants, and artist residency programs. She has had over forty solo exhibitions and is included in a number of corporate, museum, and public collections. Lowe is currently represented by Gail Severn Gallery in Sun Valley, Idaho, Patricia Rovzar Gallery in Seattle, Washington, and Argazzi Art in Lakeville, CT
