Jamiyla Lowe’s fantastical, mixed-media illustrations contain both an absorbing morbidity and humor. Her creatures are often unsettling in their ambiguity, often stemming from fictional worlds or plucked from nightmares. The artist was last featured on HiFructose.com here.
“Lowe’s work is humorous, often disarming you from your preconceived notions of what ‘hell’ would be like,” said a statement for her show “A Whole New World” at Xpace in Toronto last year. “These creatures are thriving while poking fun at the horrors of being human. Lowe’s A Whole New World is a comprehensive examination, if not a celebration, of flourishing in a world with flesh in an environment that is decrepit.”
