Nathlie Provosty (MFA '07) in Group Exhibition at Fowler's Gallery, Brooklyn, Opening April 23rd, 6pm

Fowler Arts Collective is pleased to present "Fist City", an exhibition of abstract paintings by EJ Hauser, Logan Grider, Matt Phillips, and Nathlie Provosty (MFA '07).

A fist is the hand’s best attempt to organize itself. More often than not, our attempts to create order and meaning only remind us of how lawless and mysterious life actually is. What does the inside of your closed hand even look like? "Fist City" is not just a place; ...it is a community and a credo. Hands reaching out to grasp, touch, and configure the entropic. When words become too elusive and you have to take matters directly into your hands, you have entered "Fist City". Titled after the infamous Loretta Lynn song of the same name, "Fist City" embodies the bold, take-notice attitude of Lynn’s lyrics. The artists in "Fist City" are engaged in a rigorous investigation of abstraction and all the different forms it can take. The exhibition is a collaboration between the artists: self-directed and independently organized with the support of Fowler Arts Collective. In addition to paintings, the artists have produced a limited edition broadsheet that will accompany the exhibition.The artists live and work primarily in New York City and Philadelphia. Fowler is a new gallery and studio collective located in Greenpoint, Brooklyn founded by Cecelia Post (MFA '09).
