Constance (Connie) Lowe was born in St. Louis, Missouri, and lives and works in San Antonio. She received an MFA from Western Michigan University (1979) and a BFA from Southern Methodist University, Dallas, TX (1973). Her current mixed media works combine influences of her Midwestern farming heritage, landsat photography, and the legacy of geometric abstract painting with the physical presence of materials such as felt and leather.
Victor Vasarely, a Hungarian-born French artist, was one of the founders of the op art movement. Vasarely developed his own geometric form of abstraction, which he varied to create different optical patterns with a kinetic effect, working in various materials but using a minimal number of forms and colors.
