Summary:
Lowman collects and transforms the detritus of contemporary American life, reevaluating familiar signs and symbols from print and electronic media as well as from street, home, and studio. In the liminal space between original and copy, his paintings in oil and alkyd resemble a sort of hybrid between the blurred Xerox image and a fresh tattoo, while his depictions of pop-culture figures, such as Marilyn Monroe and Nicole Brown Simpson, act as unlikely hieroglyphs, standing in for the mythologies that have built up around them. As Lowman's impulses oscillate between additive and subtractive, print technologies and mass media take on the intimacy (and mortality) of flesh.
