Author: Rob Lowe's new exhibition features works of graphics art that are simple even by his standards.
Rob Lowe – aka Supermundane – is known for bold, bright graphic artworks and illustrations comprised of simple shapes, sometimes arranged geometrically, sometimes in more organic fashion.
For his latest show, Signs & Symbols, he's pared back his work even further – but there's still a clear sense of narrative possibility that means that they're not entirely abstract. The show includes his new series of prints, Ancients Lights, that resemble windows – but with optical illusions that appear to let the world outside intrude inside.
"I want the work I make to have a physical effect on the viewer' says Rob. "I don't want to make passive work. The work is very graphic and hard edged but it is rooted in humans and what it is to be human."
