T.M. MacLowe: Everybody Is Happy
Bruno David Gallery presents an exhibition in the main gallery titled "Everybody Is Happy" by T.M. MacLowe from July 6-August 31, 2013.
T. M. MacLowe is the pseudonym of an artist who is believed to be based out of the East coast, but it is impossible to say with certainty. No one knows who the artist is. We know nothing of his/her age, gender, background or beliefs. Beyond the title, "Everybody Is Happy," the work speaks for itself. It has to. There is no back-story, no past, and no evolution through education to follow the artist's name. All the viewer has is the work before them: a larger-than-life '2016' bumper sticker mirroring those from the Obama presidential campaigns and a baseball cap embroidered in gold with 'DOW 20,000'. Together, these artworks create a space where "Everybody Is Happy."
With T. M. MacLowe's work, the reaction from the viewer is immediate and instinctual. The political and social commentaries on current events are direct and unapologetic, giving viewers the opportunity to assess their society and themselves within it. The artwork morphs these thoughts into stunning visual creations that represent opinions that are shared by many, but often kept private.
