"If you consider a frozen lake or clouds over the sea, no one has made these especially for you. I want to be that no one behind my paintings."                                                                                                                        (Reiner Heidorn)

German-born Reiner Heidorn is an autodidact (self-taught) artist who excels in many creative disciplines. Foremost among these is his mastery of painting, in which his powerful application of paint is coupled with deeply psycho-emotional themes that tie him to the traditions of the German Expressionists.

For Heidorn’s North American debut, Bill Lowe Gallery presents a comprehensive survey of selected works from Heidorn’s extensive series of monumental paintings. This selection includes figurative work, some of which echo chords from European art history, while other pieces fuse gestural techniques with stylized figures that allude to Asian Manga. Heidorn’s abstract pieces are an exploration of the discontent he feels with the hurry and illusion that pervades contemporary life.  

 

 



“For art to be great it must seem a spontaneous product of nature, born not willed; and for this to happen genius is necessary, an original power freed from the restraint of inherited rules.”                                                                                                                        (Immanuel Kant)

The philosophical architecture of Bill Lowe Gallery is built upon a reverence for the alchemical nature of artistic expression. Our vision honors the profoundly spiritual nature of visual language and the role it can play in affecting paradigm shifts at both a personal and societal level.

It is with this recognition that we have assembled a world-class stable of artists who intuitively have their fingers on the pulse of the Universe. Their expression is not an ironic or satirical look at the human condition. Instead, the gallery’s program presents powerful, content-driven works that utilize technical mastery and a visual eloquence to transform the human heart and soul at intimate levels.

For our collectors, the gallery is an oasis of beauty. Of civility. Of contemplation. This is coupled with a dynamism informed by a world view rooted in metaphysics, spirituality, philosophy, psychology and biology. Bill Lowe Gallery is a transformative experience that forever enlightens those who experience it. The gallery facilitates interaction between a broad cross-section of our community with an exotic array of artistic voices and languages to amplify and expand an unfolding cultural conversation.

Bill Lowe Gallery has become an institution in our region. We are widely considered the pre-eminent contemporary art gallery in the Southern United States. Our long presence in Los Angeles has fueled a kinetic dialogue between the East and West coasts. We approach the next decade of our mandate with clarity, commitment and excitement.
