Eve Fowler, expanding from a foundation in photography, creates work that coalesces art and language. Her two-dimensional works take the form of billboards, posters, prints, and signs, using mediums such as neon, paint, and vinyl. In addition, she also creates installations, films, and sound pieces, often resulting from collaborations with other artists, filmmakers, and writers. Fowler’s practice is concerned with the power of words, language, and cultural biases as those topics relate to gender politics and queerness, in a contemporary and historical context.
