Join artist Tristin Lowe on Thursday, February 3 from 6 - 7 pm for a tour of his mid-career retrospective, Black Holes & Rabbit Holes. Lowe will discuss the ideas, processes and context behind the work on view.
Lowe's practice is rooted in multi-disciplinary projects that explore the absurd and transform everyday, mundane materials into awe-inspiring creations. Influenced by theories that explore the science of outer space, the surrealist movement, and fairytales from our childhood, his ongoing work brings disparate worlds together and provokes viewers to consider their surroundings in a new light. His installations provide new contexts that force us to reconsider scale, appreciate the eccentric, enjoy the spectacle, and find our place in that relative space he's created.
Featured works include GODDESS Particle (2021), a newly commissioned fourteen-foot long neon comet that hovers overhead; No Wave Goodbye, Transmutation: Into the Wind (2016) the tail end of a 2001 Volkswagen Passat B5 station wagon suspended from the ceiling; Lunacy (2010), a thirteen-foot diameter, inflatable felted-wool replica of the moon, with all its pocks and craters; and Dumbo and Bourbon Pillow (2001), a life-sized inflatable pink elephant made of vinyl, standing over a pillow saturated with bourbon.
