Fresh Faces in Art: Eight LA Artists You Should Know

Roughly constructed frameworks of Home Depot supplies get dressed up for a date by Jacob Fowler. His customized assemblages combine DIY with decorat- ing to create disconcerting sculptures that are at play with issues of Masculinity and Class. The aesthetic aspects are intersected with the ‘baser’ materials to form odd, challenging but ultimately enticing sculptures that sprawl out, demanding space and interactions, formal but somehow reminiscent of other times and places. They jumble up against themselves, visually noisy and disrup- tive, yet playful and at play. (MP). http://jacob-fowler.com
