Nate Lowman

Nate Lowman was born in 1979 in Las Vegas, he currently lives and works in New York.

Lowman’s work delves into the intersections of power, beauty, and violence within art and society. These themes are intricately woven into a highly specific and intimate relationship with materials, often employing labour-intensive studio techniques like pointillist dot painting, intended to mimic silkscreens and intricately shaped hand-stretched canvases. Reflecting on contemporary issues such as mass consumerism, celebrity pop culture, and violence, Lowman appropriates and manipulates pre-existing imagery to generate symbolic references.

Lowman’s work is held in numerous public collections including the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, New York; Astrup Fearnley Museet, Oslo; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Marciano Art Foundation, Los Angeles; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Moderna Museet, Stockholm; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
