Graham Fowler BFA '75
It is landscape as subject matter, with all its complexities, that is the subject matter of my painting. My paintings are derived from experience, direct observation, and my photographic documentation/research, and they depict nature thematically through a rigorous analysis of light, space, and colour. My artworks address these fundamental but diverse, overlapping themes: the sensation of nature as subject matter in its own right, the social construction of nature, and the aquatic world. In particular I have painted the surface of water and what we see through the water’s surface for its formal, aesthetic abstract relationships and for its ineffable space. Each series of paintings brings aesthetic challenges and issues of thematic content that carry into the next.
