Israeli-born Shay Kun combines photo-realism and abstraction in his oil paintings to create seductive, nostalgic glimpses into the complex way in which we record and recall experiences. The paintings demonstrate a technical mastery and offer a cinematic seduction into the theatre of our minds. The recurring theme of these raindrop paintings is the clarity of the water, the path the water has traveled to its location and the nostalgia such images invoke. The reality as it happens - looking out of a window on a rainy day - is never remembered exactly as it was.

Descended from the school of Color Field and Abstract Expressionistic painters that include Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock and Helen Frankenthaler, Bassmi Ibrahimís work produces emotional, ethereal and hypnotic responses in his viewers. Ibrahimís paintings do not insist on a literal meaning; instead, they speak in a language we intuitively recognize, a language that mimics the movement of water, the massing of clouds, the budding of flowers. Whatever is recalled for us, it is the play of presence and absence that asserts itself as the fundamental rhythm of life.

Richard Heinsohnís dense, lush application of acrylic gel medium, coupled with a kaleidoscopic use of color, creates topographies that become lunar-like, complete with craters and undulating surfaces. His stated intention is to prod the viewer into a cellular recollection of our primordial emotional history while imbuing the viewer with an almost ecstatic embrace of the life-force unleashed in the creative process in each of us, and our world.

 

 


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 galleryís 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.
