Horace Farlowe (1933-2006)
Horace Farlowe began his artistic career studying architecture at North Carolina State University. From the Greek ruins of Paestum to Frank Gehry’s Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, structures all over the world influenced his painting style and sculptures. Farowle’s work has been shown internationally. His work is in numerous private and public collections, and his outdoor pieces like the Zoological Egg Rest at the Asheboro Zoo have become landmarks.
art were in a school of architecture. This introduction to art was responsible for many years of research trying to create a sculpture that is a reflection of me and not an obvious influence by others. Now I find forms related to architecture and the space that architecture defines is of primary importance to me. As with all artists, I am constantly in search of a “new” sculpture. For me change is necessary for growth in my work. This change can be instant or it can take place over a long period of time. It is not significant when we seek new directions, but it is important that we be aware that new directions are a must in art. The most essential advice anyone can give to an artist is to always “keep working.””
