Matthew F Fisher, The Lost Twelve, 2016, Acrylic on canvas, 24 x 17 in / 61 x 43.2 cm
Taymour Grahne Gallery presents “Observable Universe,” a solo exhibition of new works by Brooklyn-based artist Matthew F. Fisher, on display from January 18 to February 22, 2017.
Time is central to Fisher’s practice, a meditation on temporality. By repeatedly using certain visual elements, such as the seagull or waves, Fisher strips them of any prior associations and derives new meaning. The color palette he uses is at odds with his stark two-dimensional painterly style. This merging and melding of elements creates a new visual language, and frees the works from any specific genre or date.
