For Walls at A Palazzo Gallery, which recently closed at the Breschia-based space, Brendan Fowler (born 1978 in Berkeley, CA) created a series of intriguing large-scale structural framework pieces that fuse elements of photography, sculpture and raw construction. These works were showcased alongside more traditionally presented photographs, as well as several incorporating his trademark experimentation with broken and layered frames. 2012 was a busy year for Fowler, with group shows in Europe and across the U.S., including Only Parts of Us Will Ever Touch Parts of Others, curated by Timothee Chaillou, at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac in Paris, Raze; Revert; Repeat at Pepin Moore in Los Angeles, Business Innovations for Ubiquitous Authorship, presented by Higher Pictures and Artie Vierkant at Higher Pictures in New York, and three separate exhibitions (in July, September and October) at Shane Campbell Gallery in Chicago.
