Ballad of the Red Fox | Kristen Lowe

Form + Content presents an exhibition of new work by Kristen Lowe

Form+Content Gallery is pleased to announce Kristen Lowe's exhibition, Ballad of the Red Fox. The artist introduces a new body of work utilizing new materials and processes—first hand-carving richly painted soft wood with intricate patterned, animal occupied compositions to generate “drawings” that reveal detailed charcoal scenes nestled within the landscape. Though neither dialogue nor vocal narration is used, the influence of Scandinavian ballads represent the artist's deep longing to integrate her aesthetic education as an artist growing up in the United States with her Scandinavian heritage.
