Sam Loewen

Sam Loewen is a queer interdisciplinary artist and designer residing in Ottawa, Ontario. His artistic practice explores methods of codification within Western culture to discuss queer ‘masculine’ identities.

Loewen's creative process is akin to the ordering of a library or the pruning of a garden; a system of organization and collection. He arranges, pairs, groups, stacks, orders, and compiles symbolic images and coded found objects to complicate, alter, and question their meanings. Through research and the continual recomposing and shifting of forms, Loewen sifts for visual clarity. He implements design tools, formal aesthetics, and manual technical fabrication skills in his work. These strategies produce clean geometric lines and precious objects that queer the distinctions between art, design, and craft methodologies.

Sam Loewen holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Lethbridge and a Master's of Fine Art from the University of Ottawa. Loewen has exhibited his work across Canada and has had work acquired by the City of Ottawa Art Collection as well as private collections.
