Known for his large scale architecturally inspired works, Jeff Lowe's sculpture has  demonstrated a continuous engagement with materials and making throughout his  career. A student of 'The New Generation' of British sculptors that emerged in the  1960's, Lowe studied at the Saint Martin's School of Art between 1971-75, and was  taught by many of the prominent sculptors of this time including William Tucker,  Philip King and Anthony Caro. 

 

"Jeff Lowe's sculpture and drawings speak the universal language of  sculpture" William Tucker 

 

Jeff Lowe came to prominence at the age of 21, whilst still a student at Saint Martin's,  through his first solo exhibition at the prestigious Leicester Galleries in London's Cork  Street in 1974, before going on to represent Britain at the Paris Biennale. He was awarded the Sainsbury Award in 1973, and the Pollock-Krasner in 1993. 

 

Having lived in London and Portugal since the 1970’s, Lowe moved to The Limeworks  in 2017. This converted concrete building and workshop in Faversham, Kent inspired  Lowe to change his sculpture dramatically. Working with curvilinear sheets of  aluminium, which incorporated openings, overlapping layers, and dramatic use of colour. Working on these sculptures coincided with a desire to work with silkscreen printing  to produce monoprints which have had a direct and influential relationship to his sculpture. 

 

Jeff Lowe has taught at Reading University; Canterbury College of Art, London and  the advanced course at Central Saint Martins. His significant exhibitions include  Hayward Gallery, London; Serpentine Gallery, London; Peggy Guggenheim, Venice;  Ikon Gallery, Birmingham; Galerie Josine Bockhoven, Amsterdam; Robert Steele  Gallery, New York; Bodo Niemann Gallery, Berlin; Musee D'art Moderne, France; The  National Gallery of Australia; Henry Moore Institute, Leeds and Pangolin Gallery,  London. Lowe lives and works in Kent, and the Algarve, Portugal. Lowe is a member of The London Group, Fellow of Royal Society of British Sculptors  and a Fellow of The Royal Society for Arts.
