Zoe Alowan: Selections from collections “First Ladies of Jazz” and “Ecstatic Grace”


Zoe Alowan invokes the beautiful colors of Matisse and Mondrian while also delivering a Reductionist’s boldness. Using large rhythmic strokes Zoe Alowan depicts the shimmer and swinging vitality of the First Ladies of Jazz, one of her favorite subjects.

Also showing by Zoe Alowan are selections from her “Ecstatic Grace” collection inspired by traditional Devadasi Sadir.

Painting since a child and with an Oberlin art degree, she also helped establish the Manifesto of Reductionism along with other artists from the Grass Valley Graphics Group. Her art has graced the venues of hundreds of renowned jazz musicians. Wynton Marsalis, Brandford Marsalis, Herbie Hancock and others have preformed alongside her monumental jazz paintings at International Association for Jazz Educators (IJAE) events from 2003 to 2008.

November’s Featured Artist is C. Von Teaselworth. Fascinated by hidden desire, Von Teaselworth explores the darkness of longing with an illustrative touch. Humorous, surreal figures cast a shadow of their vulnerability behind vivid colour palettes.  “In my dreams I see the perfect girl who, ironically, is not perfect, and always changing.”

Love Revolution is not an ordinary gallery. We’re an artistic gift and education center committed to bringing you a deeper, more playful experience of your erotic side and we promote evocative art as inspiration to discovering your passionate, creative nature.


We are devoted to opening the dialogue and creating the opportunity for sexual wellness and freedom. We hope you will join us.
