I Am What I Paint

Iris Mes Low’s oil paintings and digital prints are visual communications. It is a fluid and ever-changing exchange between the canvas and the artist.
Goethe, as an influencer of Mes Low’s work, believed that colour is the automatic response to the matter. Colour is the space between the unseen and the seen. An emotion before it is turned into thought is a spiritual and non-representational headspace. Emotion is directly connected to colour. 
Grant Wood, Edward Hopper, as well as contemporaries Dana Irving, Ross Penhall and Michiel Schrijver are her inspirations.
Mes Low takes fluid & imperfect memories turning them into unique imagery of colour and landscape.
Landscapes are surrealistically abstracted and are derived from fantasy inspired by memories.
