This event has ended.

This is Robin Lowe’s second exhibition at Lennon, Weinberg and it represents a stride toward the metaphoric and beyond the more specific narrative content of the previous show in 2008. Those works took inspiration from the novel and film On the Beach, a harrowing story of the imminent extinction of life following a doomsday barrage of atomic bombs in the Northern Hemisphere. It is set on the southern coast of Australia during the months before the radioactive fallout reached the last people alive on earth. The final painting in that exhibition depicted an ordinary fishing boat on the water. It was impossible to know if it was moored or moving, occupied or not, but the context of the show suggested a permanently empty vessel. In hindsight, this painting was a breakthrough in Robin Lowe’s development and gave rise to a more fluid, imaginative and at times surrealistic series of paintings.
