About the artist
Shelley Moskowitz Lowenstein (aka Mosklow) is a keen observer of people and place. She has a passion for capturing moments in time-- scenes of people engaged in the casual interactions that course through everyday life. She focuses on gesture and body language, and delights in exploring the relationships between her figures, how they look at one another, how they stand or sit in relation to one another, incorporating all these impressions onto the canvas. Using the interplay of light and shadow, she paints scenes that hit the pause button on the hustle of a typical day…whether the lone figure or crowds.
Color is essential in Lowenstein’s paintings. Her work escapes from dullness and celebrates simple pleasures with color, energy, and intensity. And she delights in creating some mystery. Lowenstein depicts what she observes, even what she thinks people are thinking and feeling, but leaves it to the onlooker to fill in the blanks.
In short, she paints stories…postcards.
