Artist Statement

Ricardo Lowenberg Artist / Sculptor (B. 1960)

For over 25 years, the sacred process of creating expressive works, guided by an unwavering fascination with color, light and human nature has consumed me; body and soul. Even after more than two decades of painting professionally, it continues to bring me joy and satisfaction, as the new ways of visually encountering what it means to be human constantly evolve, allowing me to change alongside it. Both in the creative act of painting and in the evolution of the process whereby I create, I am constantly confronting the beauty and sublime essence of the human condition through my work. I began to paint and sculpt at five years old in my childhood home of Mexico City. Through the years my work and creative process as an artist continue to evolve, and this state of change energizes me. I feel strongly that we should embrace this flux and harness it to experience the beauty and grandeur of life from a unique perspective. For it is in the pursuit of transformation and experimentation that growth occurs. As a painter, I am continually seeking to evolve and explore new techniques, break the conventions of established parameters, and renew the creative process from scratch. In this constant search, I discovered the possibilities of sculpture. Although my initial interest in sculpture started as a temporary exploration for a specific project, I have now re-established it as a process in and of itself that I call The Magic Process. Sculpting is a means of personal expression that allows me to react to established parameters of perfection and explore the beauty and grace of the human form more deeply. Every sculpture I create originates with a painting, and the sculpting of that painting brings it to life. The sculptures walk in my dreams; I have been able to give them life. In a block of clay I see the limbs, the eyes, the lips, and the torso. In this process lies the spirit. This is what originally inspired me to work in the visual arts, and it remains my motivation today. Through this process, I have learned to not only embrace but also to love imperfection. I find that when I sculpt, I am fully present. As with my pictorial works, I fell in love with the sculptures. As I gaze at the works, repeatedly, I contemplate the dazzling anatomy of the human form. I am inspired by the possibilities of the feminine body, the abundant and generous curves, and the sensuality and innocence they represent— also the male form with angular features that hold both defined muscle and a very delicate gaze. For me, my purpose as an artist is and has always been to arouse, evoke, and channel the Spirit. The Abstract, the Figurative and the Castings are the integration of a powerful narrative that has allowed my Collectors to connect with the works. Painting and sculpting are acts of continuous self-discovery, and this journey allows me to ceaselessly create and interrogate the majestic mysteries of the human Spirit. It is an ever-evolving process of mystery and beauty that brings me closer to the pure essence of the human condition and above all, brings me true happiness.
