DESCRIPTION

This exhibition presents recent paintings by Denver-based artist Ian Fisher. Capturing the fleeting moments of a skyscape and fixing them onto the canvas, these works hover between abstract patterns of color and highly recognizable imagery. The tension between the two results in dynamic, vivid and boldly-rendered pictures. Though based on photographic documentation, the paintings have the capacity to transport viewers outside the gallery and into a remote, atmospheric zone of contemplation and reflection.

Curated by Nora Burnett Abrams, Critical Focus: Ian Fisher will be presented in the Whole Room from January 17 through April 13, 2014. Ian Fisher was born in 1984 in Nova Scotia, Canada, and lives and works in Denver. This is the artist’s first solo museum exhibition.
