Fred Fowler


       Fred Fowler is a visual explorer of wormholes, between civilisation and nature, native and invasive species, conflict and resolution. His paintings are seductive tableaux that subvert colonial traditions of landscape painting, and articulate the Australian condition past and present.

Under Wild Skies transforms Australia into densely textured walls of colour, torn between a complex past and an uncertain but bright and optimistic future. These works are based not only on the physical landscape, but also the cultural and psychological landscape of Australia.

Fred’s distinctive paintings bring together a collage of symbols - the local pool, sections of bushland, ghost nets, boats and buildings all combine to make place. With the addition of spirits, figures and animals comes biodiversity and interactions, which is where the paintings start to come alive.
