Exhibition History

“My work is an aesthetic examination of my immediate environment, and of earlier people who lived in this region and created objects and stories reflective of their time. It involves patterns taken from nature, and forms built from materials taken from the environment. Wing is a cast paper piece. All of the materials used are taken from wood. I felt that using cast paper as a medium was justified in that I was staying with tradition but using fiber in its present-day form.” Truman Lowe, artist
