Tim Lowly is an inter-disciplinary artist, working with painting, drawing, installation, digital media, photography and music: both individually and collaboratively. His work has a lyrical realism and quiet spirituality that have over the last thirty years contributed to an international reputation. While Tim’s work addresses a variety of subjects, the central pillar of his work has been his daughter Temma who is, in his words, “profoundly other”. The clinical diagnoses of “multiple impairment” or “spastic quadriplegia” do little to address the compelling presence of this young woman and the way her being and essence have shaped her father’s work.
Tim Lowly was born in Hendersonville, North Carolina in 1958. The son of medical missionaries, he spent most of his youth in South Korea. He received a BFA degree from Calvin College in 1981. He, his wife Sherrie and daughter Temma reside in Chicago, Illinois. Tim is affiliated with North Park University in Chicago as professor, gallery director, and artist-in-residence. He is represented by Koplin Del Rio Gallery, Seattle.
