Face Value

Face Value was a group show, Fowler showed with two other artists, Craig Wylie and Oh Sujin.

Craig Wylie was born in Zimbabwe in 1973 and graduated with a distinction with a BFA degree from Rhodes University, South Africa. He moved to London in 1998 where he later won prizes in two consecutive years for the Young Artist Award from the Royal Institute of Oil Painters. He then went on to win the First Prize of the prestigious BP Portrait Award in 2008.

Through a process of rigorous painterly investigation of his own studio photographs of people he knows, Wylie’s paintings become something different, something altogether more organic and human.

Korean artist Oh Sujin obtained a BFA degree from the prestigious Hongik University in Seoul in 2009. She currently lives and works in Seoul, Korea.

Oh’s art looks at the world with a sure and steady gaze. She turns her attention to faces chosen for how they reflect our time and presents them in pieces executed with artistic and expressive skill guided by a brilliant technique. Selected from websites and magazines, Oh’s portrait subjects have no connection to her. The artist explains, “Mass media is our only connection”.
