Lynda Lowe - Resonance
Resonance refers to vibrational energy. All matter from atomic particles to cosmic phenomena have unique resonant frequencies. Many sounds and sights are such, and I believe experiences have resonance too. They reverberate with an ongoing echo. Before any paint is applied, I incise diagrammatic drawings into the white prepared surface of a panel. These small geometric figures are barely visible in the work unless closely inspected. They represent the cause and effect of forces that operate beyond our easy perception. The pairing of contrasting elements such as light and dark, gesture and precision, movement and stillness, conscious and unconscious expression strengthen an understanding of wholeness and balance. The combinations suggest there are many approaches to knowing- empirical, rational, intuitive, symbolic- that the world is simultaneously cognizable, mysterious and resonant. -Lynda Lowe
