Peter Lowe at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts

Peter Lowe's 1974 work Relief, Series A, No.10 forms part of a great new exhibition at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts in Norwich titled Rhythm & Geometry: Constructivist Art in Britain since 1951. The exhibition, which opened in early October, is on until 30th January 2022. Their website describes the exhibition as such:


Drawn from the Sainsbury Centre collection, Rhythm and Geometry: Constructivist art in Britain since 1951, celebrates the abstract and constructed art made and exhibited in Britain since 1951 and comprises of c.120 objects across sculpture, reliefs, mobiles, painting, drawing and printmaking.


Rhythm and Geometry: Constructivist art in Britain since 1951 examines the rise of this dramatic strand in post-war British art led by the example of Victor Pasmore, who famously converted to abstract art in the late 1940s.


Opening with a selection of significant reliefs, the exhibition looks at the transition into abstraction that occurred at this time. Process-based artworks will demonstrate their mathematical or scientific foundations, before charting the development into participatory or kinetic art forms. Exploring the emotive and optical effects of colour and pattern, the exhibition ends with work in the form of geometric abstraction.


Artists include Robert Adams, Yaacov Agam, Rana Begum, Anthony Caro, Lygia Clark, Natalie Dower, Adrian Heath, Anthony Hill, Michael Kidner, Kenneth Martin, Mary Martin, François Morellet, Victor Pasmore, Jean Spencer, Takis, Mary Webb, Stephen Willats, Victor Vasarely, Gillian Wise and Li Yuan-Chia.


We are very pleased that Peter's work - a piece from the Sainsbury Centre's own collection, is hanging in such company. We have represented and shown a number of the artist's in the exhibition but have the greatest connect to Peter, who had a full solo exhibition with us in 2016 and who we have shown at many art fairs including Masterpiece, the British Art Fair and the London Art Fair.
