Description

Words and Pictures is an exhibition and catalogue of paintings and sculptures by Texas artist Vernon Fisher, dated 1980 to 2019. Curator Tracee Robertson and critic Dave Hickey explore themes and methods in Fisher’s art. Fisher came of age in the twentieth century, characterized as the bloodiest and most brutal century in history. Like many artists of his era, including poets and writers who inspire him, Fisher explores what it means to be lost in the face of indifference. His art is a personal expression of what life feels like. His paintings, typified by compositions of floating imagery and overlaid texts, present an unresolved narrative, intended to leave viewers with an overarching sense of emotion. Embracing postmodern humor, irreverence, and anti-closure, Vernon Fisher paints images of hopeful uncertainty.
