Press Release

Jeff Lowe ‘Building Space’ A Selection of

Recent Sculpture and Drawings

The Gallery in Cork Street, London 3-8 May 2010

This exhibition brings together recent works by the International Sculptor Jeff

Lowe for the first time since his major 2008 exhibition at the Robert Steele

Gallery in New York. He came to prominence with his first one man show in

1974 at the prestigious Leicester Galleries in London’s Cork St. Lowe was

only twenty-one and shortly after represented Britain at the Paris Biennale.

Exhibitions at the Hayward Gallery and Serpentine were followed by many

one-man shows and numerous international exhibitions in Canada, Portugal,

Australia and Holland.

Lowe was taught at St Martins by amongst others Sir Anthony Caro, Sir Philip

King and William Tucker. Remaining true to his roots; always a maker’ he has

produced a vast body of work in many different materials.

His new sculptures draw on his experience of the last 35 years as a sculptor.

These sculptures have been ‘made’ they are not designed or three

dimensional conceptualisations, emerging from a discipline of ‘looking’ they

are organic in their production and result from a close relationship between

the artist and object. They develop as much from discovery, accident and

recognition as from an initial starting point.

This new work radiates the excitement of new discovery. It bucks the trends

which have been so dominant over the last decade.
