Happening: Matthew Fisher at Sardine
One of our favorite non-surfing, apparently surf inspired artists Matthew Fisher is having a show at the Sardine Gallery in Brooklyn coming up. One of his pieces hangs on our wall at home, and his fascination with the fluid design of nature and his semi-blocky, slightly-cartoonish, half-whimsical compositions have always had a kind of authenticity of vision to them.
"Sardine is pleased to present Black Water Don’t Shine Like the Moon, a solo exhibition of drawings by Matthew F Fisher. It opens Saturday, Jan. 31st, with an opening reception from 6 to 9 pm. It will be open through Sunday, February 22nd. This show brings together a group of drawings that are the soul of Fisher’s artistic process.
Completed over the past few years, they reveal a time when Fisher finds his voice amidst the elements of land, sea, and sky. Combining ink and collage on book pages with hand-made or found frames, the simplest forms become timeless deliberations on existence. With all the beauty and heart one can muster, real, ideal and everything in-between, exist simultaneously."
