New Landscapes – Essay

Very honoured to have such a great essay written about the exhibition by Emily McCulloch Childs.
Here is a brief excerpt:

Fowler’s new landscapes evoke all that is ancient and beautiful about this land, and simultaneously, subtly, that which is more recent, brutal and confronting. They are a much needed, thoughtful exploration of these issues of land, animals, plants and humans, adding much to the discussion of Australia’s past and its present condition.
