Jane LowBeer, Inventory #1, 2010, monotype, 17” x 52”

Jane LowBeer: The Preponderance of the Small

June 3 - July 1, 2018
Reception: Sunday, June 3, 2018, 2 - 4 PM
Artist conversation with Curator: Sunday, June 17, 2018, 2 - 4 PM

The Visual Arts Centre of Clarington is pleased to present The Preponderance of the Small, an exhibition by artist Jane LowBeer.

Jane LowBeer invites us to join her contemplation on the significance of the ordinary, the quotidian, and the impermanent in The Preponderance of the Small. Her monotypes explore contemporary still-life, making drama out of inconspicuous household items. The exhibition transitions to animated objects that describe a strange co-mingling of the natural world with fabricated elements, and ends with a sculptural installation that brings together natural forms as graphic shapes and line. Using printmaking, collage, and assemblage, LowBeer explores the objectification and abstraction of ordinary things and leads us through tangles and rhythms born of repetition. The Preponderance of The Small encourages us to wander, to discover ourselves in the journey, using the ephemera of our lives to stay present.

Biography:
Jane LowBeer’s art practise is printmaking and mixed-media art. She studied printmaking at Atelier 17 in Paris and has been a practicing artist for over three decades. Her work has won numerous prizes and can be found in private and public collections including London’s Victoria & Albert Museum and the Bibliothèque National de Paris, France.
