Lowe’s visionary landscape provides a journey to a fantastical place. Here, he has depicted colorful aerial topography, crop circles, three-dimensional cityscapes, and various modes of transportation. This intricate drawing required nearly a year to complete.

Lowe is both a collector of Folk Art and a self-taught artist. His works are complex and distinctive: abstract from afar, but full of fine details and numerous stories when viewed up close. Lowe finds a sense of freedom in creating each artwork, “They tell me where we are going on each trip, and I just take us there.”
