M.F.A., Miami University (Oxford, OH)


Brandon Lowery was born and raised in Dayton, Ohio. He received his MFA from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio with a concentration in ceramics. His work drifts between hyperrealism to abstract anthropomorphic forms. Brandon mainly works in clay but his sculptures utilize many different mediums. His forms instill a feeling of discomfort but draws the viewer closer with fine details and his color palette. This push and pull of uneasiness and discomfort mixed with the strangely beautiful goes hand and in hand with Brandon’s concept of social anxiety, finding a sense of place, and questioning societal norms.
