Biography

New Haven, Connecticut-based artist Becca Lowry creates elaborate mixed-media works combining carved and collaged wood, oil and spray paint. Situated somewhere between sculpture and painting, the works have a three-dimensional quality that is intended to make them feel like precious objects. “As humans we have a tendency to hold on to special things,” Lowry says. “We collect objects that have particular meaning to us, we guard beautiful memories as best we can, we return to places that feel like home.” She explores similar themes in works on paper, by creating pastel rubbings from her more sculptural works.
