54. Making Room for Art that Raises Consciousness
For almost 30 years, gallery owner Bill Lowe has viewed art as a means of delivering a heightened consciousness and a higher frequency into the viewer’s heart, soul and energy field. “At its highest function, art is a mechanism for psychic surgery that can bring about spiritual and emotional healing.”
How Did You Start Using Your Talents?
As a boy, Bill was fascinated with understanding metaphysics, perception, energy fields, frequencies and wavelengths. It persisted through a successful career in radio ad sales in his 20s and provided a conceptual framework for his move into the art world. He says, “An art object is a microchip of consciousness.”
The Most Impactful Turning Point?
Realizing he was gay in his late 20s, he became aware that “the world I lived in at that time in Alabama was not going to be sustainable.” Moving to Atlanta, his adjustment to gay life briefly led to chemical dependency. Recovery led him back into metaphysics and spirituality.
The Most Powerful Lessons Learned?
Many people are seeking different forms of spirituality, authentic to themselves, more exhilarating, creative and fun. The art world is a repository of that mentality. So when he opened his gallery there was “an almost evangelical impulse driving it, not based on doctrine but on a visual language that referred to philosophical ideals.”
