"Photographs of Details of Architecture by Ellen Fisch"
2009-01-06 until 2009-01-28
New York, NY,
USA United States of America
Ellen Fisch is a photographer of many subjects, but she has always had a special passion for the details of architecture created in various materials on building facades. In an ever evolving urban environment, Fisch has dedicated herself to capturing often-unnoticed details of architecture from another age—flowers, gargoyles, arabesques, and interlocking bands—that decorate public and private structures, preserving a luminous and impressive visual record of peripheral elements that provide insight into the architectural aesthetics of their period. Ellen Fisch has been a Premiere Portfolio Artist and regular blog contributor at absolutearts.com since 2004.
The motifs that she has expertly preserved with her lens include ornamental details influenced by the art and cultures of Africa, Asia, and Europe as well as the United States, celebrating a craftsmanship that makes, as the artist has noted, “even the most modest establishment a structure of beauty.” Her work both satisfies the eye and records an integral part of New York City’s architectural heritage.
Ellen Fisch has studied art in various media throughout her life and has exhibited widely in museums and galleries in New York, and throughout the US. Her photographs and paintings are in the private collection of Elizabeth the Queen Mother of Great Britain and in many others in the U.S., Europe, Asia, and Australia, as well as in such corporate collections as those of Delta Airlines, Park IP and the permanent collections of City University of New York and the Vatican.
