Stephan Fowlkes


Independent District

Novas Warehouse


Born in New York, Stephan Fowlkes studied at Bennington College (1993) and the Lacost Schools of Arts in France (1994). He then followed further studies in teaching in New York (1999). He has exhibited internationally and lectured on the contemporary art, more recently World Rehabilitation Fund Benefit Auction. Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. New York, NY, as well as an associate artist of the Eickholt Gallery, New York.

He is a painter and sculptor and his body of work represents an ongoing investigation into the mechanics of interpersonal dynamics. He is fascinated with interactions between people, from any one-on-one to the dynamics within or between groups. Behavioural patterns and social conditioning play a large role, as do the masks he states we choose to wear, when determining the roles assumed in any given situation, with the exception of pure solitude.

He believes there is a social "norm" we are expected to live by, strictures we live within, with boundaries and standards, rules for how we are to act in any given situation. Yet inherently, we each possess unique traits suggesting an innate individuality no "norm" can harness.

By reducing his perceptions of these complex roles and relationships to their essence and translating these into an aesthetic language, the universal language of geometry, he manages to translate and break down his unique, personal, insignificant experiences, observations, and interactions into an aesthetic vocabulary which can be understood, interpreted and internalized by all.

transVoyeur and the Artist
He is intrigued by the visual geometric form, a reductivism of the tangible captured in his senses conceptualised to one of structure and tone. His geometric abstractions and explorations to extend to the urban and societal analysis founded on the aims and objectives of transVoyeur. His environmental dissections relative to the ecology juxtaposed in terms of the urban space.
