Zolla/Lieberman Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of Vernon Fisher: Lifting Weights in Space. For more than 40 years, Fisher has used photo-realism, cartoons, text, pop icons, maps and grids to create interdisciplinary post-modern narratives. He blurs the lines of the emotional and the scientific, often insisting the viewer consider perspective. Fisher’s illustrated stream of conscience include bits of digital noise and washed abstractions appearing at random that invite speculation and challenge the conventions of contemporary composition.
