Michael Loew w as a master of weaving geometry with nature. He seemed to delight in explor ing the limits of nature based abstraction. Throughout his career one can s ee a back and forth between the almost totally abstract\, and the represent ational. Although it is impossible to say how and where Loew's modern tende ncies originated\, it is fair to say that his experiences\, his education\, and his own interests led him in a distinctly avant-garde direction very e arly on. On the side of experience\, one might point out his collaboration with DeKooning on a 1939 NYC World's Fair mural that led to a life-long fri endship that must have influenced Loew. Certainly\, his post war training u nder one of the most important nature-based abstract expressionists\, Hans Hofmann\, also proved to have had significant influence. Then\, there was h is study abroad at the Atelier Leger. Although various influences may have come to bear on Michael Loew\, his work is always in his own true voice\, a nd that voice is consistently clear\, concise\, and elegantly expressive. < /p>\n
