Other artwork by John Lowe



Over the past 40-odd years I have experimented with other forms of art including drawings, watercolours, oils, stone carvings and sculptures.
These are some of my doodles, daubs and experimental works.

    REVERSISM

What is new in art?
   
During the 1990's I began experimenting with different techniques using oil paints and discovered what I call 'Reversism'. This method of producing a picture involves applying the paint in the reverse order to that which is normally followed. Artists usually start with painting the background and gradually work towards the foreground with the finer details of a picture. With this method everything is reversed. The objects and details in the foreground of the picture are painted first and other layers applied on top of that, in the reverse order they are intended to appear when the picture is 'revealed'.
This becomes an interesting challenge to work backwards towards the objects furthest away.

After all of the layers have been applied the paint is then stripped off using a palette knife during what I call "The Reveal". The oil paint is not allowed to dry and the whole operation must be completed whilst the paint is still sticky.

Here are some of the abstract experimental works and finished paintings.
I don't mind showing these 'experimental' works because they formed part of the learning curve which was a period of discovery for me lasting a few years.  Someday I might return to this adventurous but difficult method of creating a picture which gives interesting impressionist results. As far as I know I am the only person crazy enought to undertake this concept, still..it is nice to challenge convention if the results are interesting.
