Nina Mae Fowler

Art & Culture

Nina Fowlers practice focuses on idolatry, icons and fame. The imagery used is primarily 1930s and 1940s Hollywood, yet the themes are as contemporary as ever. Exploring our all-consuming desire for fame and our lust for stardom (and stars), Fowler breaks down the fac?ade to reveal the dark side of celebrity. Using traditional methods (including drawing, bas relief, etching and sculpture) the images are ambiguous and contradictory, juxtaposing beauty and glamour with violence and desperation.
