Lauretta Lowell Biography

(American, b. 1951)


Lauretta Lowell is an awarding winning mixed media assemblage artist from Santa Barbara who now resides in Palm Desert, CA. Her contribution to the arts is to unite the past and present with assemblages that harvest relics of the early twentieth century with our expectations for cerebral sculptures and wall art today.


The whimsical creations that leave her collectors, and those new to her work, raising their eyebrows is her inspired output that fills galleries, her studio and her website with wonder. When she was asked her process on how she comes up with her ideas for her sculptures and wall art she said:


"My art isn't planned in advance; I just let it happen. The story just seems to write itself when I wander around my workshop picking up this and that, combining treasures to see if they talk to me or spark some sort of electrical current through my veins. Using found vintage objects; I hope to offer you an interesting and fulfilling moment that captures your curiosity and makes you smile, creating an experience for you that you have never felt before."


Lauretta's assemblages are ready to start a conversation in a gallery or a home. No wall, no table, no showcase is safe from her willingness to put so many things together, to construct each finished piece.


With enigmatic titles come the wink of a sophisticated patron adding a whimsical curiosity to a collection. And with a study of each assemblage, after we puzzle over the puzzle, we always see more.  There is always another layer or detour in each multi-media story. The whole is much greater than the sum of the parts in Lauretta's world. But the parts come from so many places and memories, each holds its own. Lauretta Lowell has art gliding in new definitions. That is Lauretta at her best. She is always at her best.
