Lydia Street Gallery: SUM of the Parts

Valerie Fowler, that acclaimed painter of natural phantasmagoria, returns with a new show. Says the artist: "I began this body of work feeling scattered, a little spent and rudderless, then walloped by unrelenting heat, the worst in my memory, and I’m a lifelong Texan… Beyond the walls of my studio, fires and floods were happening seemingly everywhere, and the Arctic ice cap was melting four times faster than scientists had previously understood. I felt exhausted from the challenge to maintain hope. I decided to just keep at the work, following curiosity, making pieces that reflected my scattered consciousness." Suggestion: Give your eyes a glimpse of the wild sublime and soak in the glory of what Fowler's brushes and pigments so vividly capture.
