Two of his featured works are “Promises” and “Loyalty.” The former, an inkjet print, is a star-spangled hued stream of consciousness.
About the work, Lowry writes:
“‘Promises’ is a digital collage with elements of America’s ‘glory days.’ The buildings are from Detroit’s General Motors building, which was referred to as ‘Cadillac Place.’”
In a gray sky, Lowry placed a red banner with white text:
“Work for life and not for places, temples, cemeteries, and museums.
Work in the midst of everyone, for everyone, and with everyone.”
Lowry extracted the quote from an article entitled “Slogans” by Russian-born graphic designer Aleksandr Rodchenko in 1921.
“To enhance the contemporary feel, I added a group of blue drones pulled from the news of present day as well as bold copy which states ‘Health, Shelter, and Education,’ which all people (not just card-carrying Americans) are entitled to according to our constitution.”
