Lilah Fowler uses sculpture and drawing to create works that explore ideas that extend throughout her practice, around the imprint of time on an object and how it influences our relationship to space and experience. The works frequently involve a play with illusion and perspective. The sense of the physical and the psychological place within and around the works and how the body navigates them is as important as their positioning. Often the works are installed in response to their environment and thereby address a serendipitous and spontaneous reaction to form, space and surface. A formal and minimal language is used to play with and create an exaggerated sense of false perspective. It is this simultaneous creation of depth and solidity, which is central to the works.
