We are deeply saddened to announce Vernon Fisher, our dear friend and brilliant artist, passed away at his home in Fort Worth, Texas due to complications from an earlier illness.
Vernon was a legendary artist, educator, and mentor who taught us to challenge ourselves and our minds through his paintings, writings, and installations. As a visionary with a keen intellect and a fierce sense of humor, his importance and influence will remain with us all for years to come. Our thirty year relationship with him is among our most treasured experiences. Our heartfelt sympathy goes to his loving wife and partner Julie Bozzi at this time.
“My work is an allegory of our interactions with the stuff we call the world, it is a metaphor for our finding our way. I see myself more as an observer than anything else, I just see all this stuff and point to it. I am like a comedian who simply walks on stage and reads a newspaper. You don’t have to make it funny or absurd: it already is.”
