Painter and printmaker Lowell Nesbitt rendered his abstract and realist works in a personal style. He is most well-known for a series of over 400 monumental floral images set against monochromatic and patterned backgrounds, isolated in space and captured up close to fill the canvas. Additionally, he crafted studio interiors, clothing articles, and fruit and vegetable pairings in his works. Although he was labeled as a photorealist, Nesbitt protested the classification, citing his bold work as loosely painted, interpretively distorted, and ambiguous.
