Artist Clyde Fowler shows his art at Long View Gallery in Washington, D.C.
THE OPENING reception for the exhibition “Pictorial Choreography” by North Carolina based artist Clyde Fowler was held at Long View Gallery in Washington, D.C. on Thursday evening, Oct. 6.
FOWLER describes his paintings as pictorial choreography, and approaches his work in a manner similar to a choreographer, filling them with orchestrated sensations and intuitive notations while giving consideration to movement, rhythm, space and form. Although Fowler’s imagery can reference personal experience and a range of artistic influence, especially the staged tableaux of theatrical director and designer Robert Wilson, he begins with no preconceived message or set direction. Instead he allows the paintings to develop according to the added strokes, shapes and colors while constantly revising aesthetic decisions during that process. Mr. Fowler also teaches at North Carolina School of the Arts in Winston-Salem.
