Lowe’s Tree canvases – ‘Grace,’ ‘Abundance’ and ‘Inertia’ – return to the artist’s interest in the Tree of Life. ‘Grace’ spans the metaphorical paths that guide a woman’s life journey. Each branch, named after a painting in the series, presents symbolic choices, their connotations and consequences. The result is a map of images and symbols which flow from place to place. ‘Abundance’ with its cortex-like appearance, forms branches that hold positive and progressive thoughts, leading to a sense of well-being and security. ‘Inertia’ mirrors the shape of the ominous Spade playing card, referencing the dysfunctional drives that can lead to mental stagnation.
