    Episode 11 - James Fowler

    Drawing inspiration from aerial views of cities and maps, James Fowler's acrylic, oil and gouache works on canvas, paper, and wood are playfully geometric and resonate with the digital world, and culture of online information distribution. His non-traditional landscape paintings borrow from cartography and geometric abstraction, and celebrate both urban centres and rural living. James attended York University in Toronto for Film Studies and maintains a full time studio practice as a painter in Toronto.   His work has been exhibited in Canada and the United States, and his work can be found in private and corporate collections in Canada, US and Europe. In addition to exhibiting, James has been involved in several curatorial projects including the 10x10 Photography project, Nuit Rose and Queering Space at the Archives formally the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives  to name a few. James is a great mentor to younger artists and has vast knowledge of the contemporary artist’s practice, community building  and social media. 
    On today’s Episode James discuss his process for his city view paintings, supporting Queer artists as well as his recent adventures with Tik Tok.

Art Conversations

I extremely enjoyed listening to Lydia walk us through her journey with colour and composition. Resulting in the artist’s personal view becoming universal and thus allowing the viewer to have their own experience. Lisa Jayne Irvine’s podcast truly allows listeners a glimpse of an artist’s mind and process. It’s very inspiring and I look forward to the next episode.
