Luke Fowler (Glasgow, 1978) studied at the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee between 1996 and 2000. One of Glasgow’s salient contemporary artists, Fowler explores the limits and pre-established conventions of biographical and documentary filmmaking. His works are compared with those of the 1950s British Free Cinema, the movement that energized British films and filmmaking by capturing the decade’s every-day life and reality. By taking on every possible task in the making of his work –he is the artist, the curator, the historian, the filmmaker and the musician–, Fowler paints impressionist portraits of fascinating personalities. His films are
montages or collages of archival footage twinned with new recordings, interviews, photos and audio, and allow us a look into a new awareness, a unique and fascinating cognizance, of the matter in question.
Luke Fowler has exhibited his work, among other venues, at The Modern Institute of Glasgow. His work “All Divided Selves” was shortlisted for the Turner Prize 2012.
