Lilah Fowler’s exhibition invites us to explore our relationship to space and our experience of it, the passage of moving through a physical space and experiencing its proportions and elements. Separate elements are disassociated from their original context, creating an unexpected pairing of matter and material. The forced arrangement of space rendering the fam... [more]

When viewed with 3D glasses shapes and colors seem literally to emerge out of the canvas. I explore the interaction of the space displayed on the canvas and the binocular space in front of the viewer. My artwork tries to demonstrate that S3D images displayed on... [more]
