Johnny Izatt-Lowry (b. 1995, Durham) lives and works in London. He holds a BFA in Fine Art at Ruskin School of Art and MFA Fine Art from Slade School of Art.
Izatt-Lowry looks at the world from a place of remove. With each of his paintings there is a dream-like quality that implies we may have seen it before. His subjects are often quotidian; a bird, a log, a field. Things we “know” but which under his direction constantly elude us through their ambiguous materiality.
Recent solo exhibitions include Around dusk, or thereabouts, Fabian Lang, Zurich; A Foot, a book, a kettle, a hand, a pot, a sunflower, a head, a bonsai, a pear, and two shoes, Cooke Latham Gallery, London; A Table, with things on, Taymour Grahne Projects, London; By day, but then again by night, Cooke Latham Gallery, London.
