Brian Fisher – Artist Statement
All the art I make; print, oil on canvas, even my sculpture, in some way employs or is informed by printmaking. When I began working with an etching press in 1997 I became completely enamored of print, particularly monotype print process and its infinite possibilities. Monotype’s spontaneous qualities encourage rules to be broken and boundaries to be crossed. It is a wonderfully versatile means of expression.
My art has its’ origin in story. The story may be personally relevant, but often falls within the realm of classical myth and stories that encompass how our world came to be, who we are, what happens when we die and because we live now in this moment in time, what is our purpose?
My first love was architecture and my BA in Interior Architecture, College of Architecture and Design from Kansas State University continues to inform how I think, see and make art. I‘m grateful to be a part of the vibrant community of artists making, writing and performing on Vashon Island WA at this point in my life and in the creative history of the Island.
I exhibit locally and regionally. I am currently represented by Roby King Gallery of Winslow, Bainbridge Island, Washington.
