“Materials are really what tweaks my brain; I’ll find something, a piece of paper or fabric that resonates with me and I have to use it. The things I make are a response to the materials first and then I think the visual catalogue of my environment that I have developed in my photo making is what helps form subject in my work. (…) I think of those works like the paintings I couldn’t make in paint. The change of material has really satisfied the painting process for me, in a roundabout way.” (Interview from Little Paper Planes)

Drawing on sources including urban planning, architectural design values and overlooked, overfamiliar objects, they are a collection of clues that shape ones own understanding of placement within natural and urban architectural space. In that encounter, Fowler’s practice attempts to level art, architecture, and design as equally part of a web of social, philosophical and experiential constructs.” (Artist’s statement)
