Legal Tender by Fred Fowler
Posted by: KOAN
Leading up to “Decorating The Apocalypse” by Fred Fowler, Backwoods Gallery has released a limited edition hand coloured etching. $80 unframed. And available online.
Breaking from street work to study fine arts at the VCA, Fowler’s recent work skillfully uses elements from both his formal and street disciplines to create a body of work that fits Backwoods perfectly.
“Decorating the Apocalypse” is an investigation of themes related to cultural identity. Images of masks and faces function as the primary signifiers in Fowler’s work. Through sculpture, painting and printmaking, he questions the ‘mythologies’ or artificial constructs surrounding issues of identity.
“Decorating the Apocalypse” opens at Backwoods Gallery on the 17th of August.
