Though Lowell Davis was from Small Town America, he had a very large impact on many people across the US and abroad. Lowell was blessed with a wonderful talent that few people can say they ever had. There is probably no one universal definition of visual art; though there is a general consensus that art is the conscious creation of something beautiful or meaningful using skill and imagination.
Lowell Davis had both in spades!
He loved his small town roots and stayed true to those roots all his life. One might say he always enjoyed the simpler things in life. He was definitely not concerned about the “almighty dollar.” If they came—great! If not, that was okay, too. Lowell once said about his beloved town of Red Oak II: “I don’t believe that an artist should be restricted to use only paint or clay. It can be anything including junk, wood, even an old building. To me, Red Oak II is a combination of a painting and a sculpture, and it is just made from things that someone else threw away.”
Lowell had many, many friends and collectors and he very much appreciated all of them. Being the modest man that he was, he didn’t talk a lot, avoided crowds and felt uncomfortable when people "oohed" and "aahed" over him, which happened quite frequently, and deservedly so.
Lowell had the gift of detail. His eyes saw things in nature, people and events that no one else could see. After him seeing it, imagining it and then adding his version of how it should be presented, we all have his paintings, drawings, figurines, sculptures and illustrations to be thankful for and to always remember him by.
Lowell was truly the “Father of Country Art.”
