Ricardo Lowenberg’s paintings are a personal, contemplative look into a captivating world of human drama and cryptic symbolism. Influenced by the Impressionists as well as the great Mexican muralists, he creates fascinating allegories and beautiful portraiture that are interspersed with lovely flora and idyllic landscapes. His brushwork is precise without appearing calculated and his palette is bright and tropical. The moods that Lowenberg conveys range from contemplative to joyous, the power of his characters lies in their statuesque features and potent eyes. Lowenberg’s sensitive renderings are cloaked in psychological drama that bestows the same prominence to banal daily activities and crucial life events. In the simple, everyday human activity there appears contemplation and ritual knowingly playing their part amongst the rhythms of nature. Meanwhile, Lowenberg’s landscapes and still-lifes are incredibly lush where cool blues and deep violets match the brilliant hues of citrus and verdant greens.
Ricardo Lowenberg’s work has been collected and exhibited throughout the United States, Mexico, and Europe.
