  Lowry’s latest exhibition ‘Out in the Night’ extends on established narratives within her practice examining histories and tales of the bush. Naked figures assume positions of submission, sublime reverence, and suggestive malevolent actions. These compositions appear as snapshots to untold rituals that carry the same latent purpose as the landscape they inhabit. Lowry pushes against our sanitized colonial painting traditions that seek to progress and civilize the landscape for the purposes of occupation and nationhood. Instead​ ‘Out in the Night’ offers a more challenging contemplation of this space, one which houses latent energy from past ghosts that wrestle with the ultimate beauty of the nature abundant.
