Highlighting ROAM Gallery Artist
Iris Mes Low - Painter
A 3rd Generation artist, Mes-Low began apprenticing from 1985 onwards with several artists in the Netherlands and then set to work as an artist, illustrator & muralist.
In 1991, she made a permanent move to the West Coast of Canada where Mes-Low continued studies in the Visual Arts at Emily Carr University of Art and Design, Vancouver, BC.
Mes Low’s art is a fluid and ever-changing exchange between the canvas and images of her subconscious. Her approach to landscape is one of tightening forms and accentuating the intensity of the environment— creating surrealistic abstractions of the scene. Her trees take on human-like characteristics as they congregate against dawning skies and urban hubs of suburbia.
Urbanization plays an essential role in her work. Finding the quiet, serene moments in a landscape. That moment when you singular in a landscape, something that seldom happens in times of extreme population density.
Artists such as Hopper, Woods and contemporary Penhall are among her inspirations. Over the years, her paintings have meandered into private collections in Europe, North & South America & Australia.
