Long View Gallery Presents Clyde Fowler

Tonight from 6:30 to 8:30, Long View Gallery celebrates the opening of its latest show, an exhibition of works by North Carolina-based artist Clyde Fowler. Fowler was the long-time director the visual arts program at the North Carolina School of the Arts, and his show will be on display through November 6, 2011.

Fowler describes his paintings as 'pictorial choreography'. He approaches his work in a manner similar to that of a choreographer, filling them with orchestrated sensations and intuitive notations while giving consideration to movement, rhythm, space and form. His art explores the associative nature of visual relationships and the dynamic potential of juxtaposition involving a language that is purely abstract. Although Fowler's imagery can reference personal experience and a range of artistic influences, especially the staged tableaux of theatrical director and designer Robert Wilson, he begins with no preconceived message or set direction. Instead, Fowler allows the paintings to develop according to the added strokes, shapes and colors while constantly revising aesthetic decisions during that process.
