MICHAEL MARLOWE | MIDWEST
October 4 – October 28Artist-Attended Reception: Saturday, October 7, 3-5 p.m.add to my calendar
Michael Marlowe’s large-scale painting process is rooted in an abstract approach to imagery of our biological world. His painterly transcriptions examine and vibrantly animate isolated aspects of our bodies and their environments, the organic in conversation with the manmade. In MIDWEST, Marlowe invokes the rolling plains and agricultural rows of the region, memories of his own youthful experiences dramatized by way of color and scale.
“The idea, very abstractly, are these contoured shapes—maybe a hill or a landscape—very minimal, very simple; a gestural line, then, between those lines and that volume, this cavity is created. Between organic lines are more constructed lines. It comes directly from my experiences, as a kid, walking furroughs, walking the fields.”
Michael Marlowe is a studio artist, interior designer, and art director with previous experience as a production designer working in the film and television industry. He attended the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design Architecture and Art and Arizona State University, earning several degrees culminating in an MFA in set design for theater. He has been exhibiting nationally in both group and solo exhibition since 1982.
Please join us Saturday, October 7, from 3-5 p.m. for the artist-attended opening reception of MIDWEST.
