Kevin Lowdon Artist Statement: Over the last two years in Bellingham, I have been fortunate enough to have the opportunities to work with publications, music festivals, and bands such as: Make.Shift Art Space, What’s Up Magazine, Maximum Rock N’ Roll Magazine, Studios Magazine, The Seattle Stranger, The Cascadia Weekly, Summer Meltdown, Chinook Festival, Daniel Kirkpatrick & The Bayonets, Blake Noble, Wild Throne, Cody Beebe & The Crooks, and many more. It has been a privilege to continue being involved with these great people, who make it their mission to make music accessible to everyone.
My work is about their mission to promote the local music community and my own desire to help visually present that message through photography. I am constantly challenging myself to find new and interesting ways to capture visually compelling imagery. However, what I have found is that it’s less about the technical aspects of the image and more about the emotional connection. I look for moments emit energy of timelessness that will let the viewer experience and relive that moment. It is this unspoken and unsung feeling that music gives us that makes us feel alive and appreciate the experience that music provides us with. If I can capture this kind of an image, I know I’ve done my job and am able to give back to a community that has given so much to me.

Daniel Brooks Artist Statement:
“The moon is most happy when it is full…” – Hafiz
My art is expressed in a variety of disciplines and mediums. The Work I create consists of painting, sculpture, original music, performance, and the shooting and digital manipulation of photos and videos – and – sometimes the combination of some or all of these elements.
Since early childhood, circles and the various manifestations of light have captivated me. Some of my first memories are of lying in my crib at night staring out the bedroom door at the spherical hall light and playing games with the light so that when I squinted, it would break up into rays and halos. Many of my early paintings were square surfaces with a circle inside. Then I began accumulating and painting on drumheads and various other round surfaces. My exhibition Well Rounded, at the Lucia Douglas Gallery June 9, will include numerous recent round paintings.
The circle is a universal symbol used by humans since before recorded history. It has been used to represent the infinite, wholeness, totality, and the sun in its boundless or limitless aspects. It is a symbol that is found in all cultures. In sacred geometry it represents that which has no beginning or end and no divisions. For me, the circle quite often represents a portal (porthole) to another world that feels like deep seascapes or outer space and sometimes both at the same time.
I am interested in light and how it can be manipulated to create and/or enhance my painting, sculpture and video work. In painting, I have been mixing my own paints from raw pigments and have enjoyed working with interference pigments that refract light, as opposed to reflecting light; thus adding another dimension to my abstract work where some of my paintings appear to change as you view them from different angles. In addition to refraction, many other elements such as shadows, polarization, reflection, projection and sound also play important parts in my work.
I have been influenced by technology over the years. In my video work, I have been continuing the abstract world of painting via lenses, digital manipulation, layering and the refraction of light. Even though I am using similar scientific concepts in painting and videos, the outcome is quite different.
My philosophy of art and music has always been to enjoy the process as much as possible, to involve others when possible and to JUST KEEP DOING IT!
