The exhibition will include new paintings with color along with a very large
scale, one color "drop cloth painting" from 1999.
The new paintings mark a return to color for Fisher's work as color veils
and areas of free, colorful painting mark a surface which has its beginnings
as a black and white painting on the verso. As the canvas itself acts as a
veil for the black and white painting showing through from it's back, the
color acts likewise for the surface of the canvas. Craig Fisher's process
orientation delivers a strange, almost anti-compositional result. The
purpose is to prioritize change and movement on, around and through the
As Maurice Fréchuret (Director of the CAPC Museum, Bordeaux, France) writes,
"For Craig Fisher, the space of the canvas cannot be defined in an
unequivocal way. Rather, it is simultaneously a surface on which his
artistic ends are rigorously and confidently forged, and an area which still
reveals his various experimentations the traces of hesitation and
uncertainty which presided over the paintings concrete development."
With these new paintings, Fisher gives himself over to the flux created by
the movement between the determined and the undetermined. Good intentions
fly out the window and the viewer is left with a crazy rhythm and a voyage
through all the spaces "in-between" the pictorial events.
Craig Fisher has been exhibiting in New York since 1978 and exhibits
regularly in Germany and France as well as other European Countries.
Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 11:00 to 6:00 p.m.. For
