Deborah Colton Gallery is pleased to present Inscapes, a solo-exhibition of paintings by artist Lowell Boyers.
Inscapes presents a selection of recent works from the artist that investigate and demonstrate parallels between
his creative and philosophical practices. The exhibition opens Saturday, May 4th and runs through June 15th,
2019, with a public opening reception on Saturday, May 4th from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.
Lowell states, “I see the creative imagination as a birthright belonging to every being, and my work is
fundamentally a textural portrayal of the unfolding blossoming of various stages of awakening to that active
nature.” His new work of “Landscapes and Inner Scapes” paintings engages an experimental process of painted
discovery that also draws on the artist’s long-term engagement with Buddhist philosophy and practice.
Tom Healy, writer and former Chairman of the Fulbright Board and President of the Lower Manhattan Cultural
Council, has written that “Boyers' paintings radiate outward. It's as if we were witness to the moments following
internal combustions, as if Boyers had just broken a barrier between us and some inner world. The surfaces are
so liquid that color stains that world, saturates it with brilliance, but never seems to fix it into a rigid image. There is
no ground, no sky, no horizon in these paintings. We look through cloud color, breath, vapor toward the glow of
some inner space.”
Boyers is a graduate of the prestigious Yale University MFA program and the Rhode Island School of Design
(BFA). For 30 years his work has been included in both private and institutional exhibitions in Abu Dhabi, Dallas,
Germany, Houston, India, London, Los Angeles, New York, and St. Louis.
Lowell Boyers lives and works in New York City.
