Functional Artwork - Outdoor Sculpture

Using wood as a primary material, Lowe creates sculptures that reference the myths and stories of his Ho-Chunk heritage. Based on the Woodlands landscape, his work explores the patterns of nature as it responds to generations of human intervention. “As a woodland Indian, I can’t ignore my environment . . . that’s what my work reflects,” he said. He hopes his emphasis on nature will encourage his audience to pay attention to environmental destruction. The “wood” structure in this piece is actually made of cast bronze and cast glass, which was completed at the Indianapolis Art Center with supervision from Lowe.
