Nate Lowman

Nate Lowman has achieved celebrity as both a neo-appropriation artist and a ringleader of the late-night downtown art crowd. His paintings, sculptures, and installations, influenced by Richard Prince and Cady Noland, explore violence and decay in American culture. They have taken many forms: silkscreens of bullet holes, rusted gas-station pumps, and collaborations with Dan Colen and other artists.

He has shown at leading New York galleries including Andrea Rosen, Gavin Brown's Enterprise, Gladstone, and Maccarone, and has been included in major museum shows of American art such as the Whitney Biennial (2006), Greater New York (P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, 2005), and Uncertain States of America (Astrup Fearnley Museet for Moderne Kunst, Oslo, 2005).
