Vernon Fisher - North American Birds
Nov 18 – Dec 22, 2006
Mark Moore Gallery is pleased to announce new paintings by Vernon Fisher.
Addressing the everyday business of living, Fisher’s multi-media paintings engage with a narrative conceptualism which when placed over a deliberately misleading grid system imply that the intent is an informational attempt to solidify meaning. Fisher of course, positively dismisses this possibility via the fluid and interconnected juxtapositions of images and text, which undermine static and singular readings. A mixture of factualities, personal reflection and prognostication, memories and ruminations, which face the problem of navigating meaning in the world, often with a self-depreciating humor, Fisher's constant invention keep one's attention locked into the complex dialogue that intrigues him too.
Fisher was included in the 2000 Biennial at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York and was the subject of a one-person exhibition at The Glassell School of Art of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Fisher is included in major public collections including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; the Art Institute of Chicago; the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
