  Fred Fowler’s exhibition, ‘Home / Visitors’, features new paintings by the Melbourne based artist in his first solo presentation in Queensland.
His distinctive paintings are landscapes – physical, cultural or psychological – that expose the hidden and imaginary, described as wormholes or portals to alternative realities. He uses abstraction to eliminate background noise and convey the impact of a complex past on the Australian landscape.  A keen observer of the world and in particular signs, maps and symbols, the title ‘Home / Visitors’ arose from the artist seeing a sports score tally sign with those words, but absent of any scores, conjuring a metaphor for the exhibition.
