M+B and Ghebaly Gallery present jointly “Exceedingly and Abundantly Blessed” a two-part exhibition of new work by Aaron Fowler. Unfolding across the two spaces, the exhibition features a new body of sculptures and spatial interventions in the artist’s signature language of memoiristic, maximalist bricolage.
In large-scale assemblages that bridge the categories of painting and sculpture, Fowler deploys a great range of found materials, from paint-soaked cotton balls and motorized barber chairs to shards of mirrored glass and lengths of LED string lights. He corrals these disparate objects into tributes to significant people in his life with a special focus on his immediate family. Fowler sees each one of his images as an active, physical way of manifesting a future free of limitations for himself and his family members, frequently depicting goals and milestones he wishes to see achieved and better lives being built together.
Last appearance of Fowler was a very promising one at the 2018 LA Biennial “Made in LA” at the Hammer Musuem, see the image below
