Nancy Lowry

Often seemingly minimal, Nancy Lowry's paintings are like apparitions taking form. Uncannily familiar, they teeter, wondrously, in the delightful, precarious space between landscape and abstraction.

Nancy Lowry was born in Toronto in 1978 but she has lived in Saskatoon since she was a child. She first started painting the landscape through a teen workshop at Emma Lake. After studying liberal arts, painting and drawing at the U of S she went on to complete her BFA at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in 2003. She has participated in numerous workshops and residencies since, including a one-month residency in Cornerbrook, Newfoundland, the Triangle Arts Association in Brooklyn, New York, and many years attending and later organizing the Emma Lake Artists' Workshop.

Her unique "paintscapes" are intimately connected to landscape but demonstrate a strong affinity with abstraction and non-objective painting as well. Although intimately scaled, her paintings have a powerful presence nonetheless. There is an inescapable materiality in the heavily-tooled surfaces, strong gestural marks and bold use of colour. Mutable and resistant to classification, they allow viewers to discover new forms and associations each time.
