LAUNCH: New work by Mat Collishaw, Francesca Lowe & Wolfe von Lenkiewicz

March 28, 2012 by Kay

Press release: A new work by British artist Francesca Lowe will be launched at Other Criteria (New Bond Street) on 5 April 2012. The work, entitled Love’s Letters will be one of three new projects on display simultaneously until 17 May 2012. These also include new drawings by fellow British artists Wolfe von Lenkiewicz and work from Mat Collishaw.

Lowe’s work is concerned with the human journey through life and time. She uses trees as a recurring motif and as a way of presenting opened up lung-like systems of relations that echo the didactic charts and models of pre-enlightenment thought.

For this new work, Love’s Letters, Francesca Lowe uses a tree to house a number of objects and themes important to her work. The word ‘love’ is suspended amidst the branches and is surrounded by a myriad of birds and reclining and posing sirens. Alongside these fluttering and stretching beings are balancing acrobats amidst explosions from ammunition and artillery fire, which produce a swirling colourful effect.

The symbolism of the fertile imagery is that of the growth, possibility and renewed sociability that spring brings following the introspection of winter. Bountiful spring-like associations and positive affirmations of desire are visible within the "mind-scape" of the tree.

Love’s Letters by Francesca Lowe is a beautiful giclee print with glazes, which is more similar to a multilayered collage with its intricate details and delicate colouring. It acts as a joyous and celebratory metaphor of life and humanity.
