Susan Lowe: Curtains Exhibition
The exhibition Curtains is an exhibition about family and masks in figurative and literal. Masks are featured in the exhibition. This collection of work is dedicated to Susan Lowe's grandson Devin who passed away from leukemia in 2017.
Lowe felt compelled to construct a series of paintings that depict images of objects she saw every day when she visited Devin in the hospital: curtains, hallways, windows, stairs, and doors. Curtains were disturbing to the artist because the sound of the swish of the curtain was heard and seen—ominous. Many other images depict ideas of passage, water, bridges, rafts, and idyllic landscapes.
