Brian Fisher has lived and made art on Vashon Island, Washington since 1989. He shows locally and regionally. Brian has a long association with Vashon’s local print cooperative, Quartermaster Press having first joined the group in 1997. He says, “All the art I make, print, oil on canvas, even my three-dimensional work, is informed or inspired by the printmaking process.”
ARTIST STATEMENT: My art has its origin in story. The story may be personally relevant, but often falls within the realm of classical myth and stories that encompass how our world came to be, who we are, what happens when we die and because we live now in this moment in time, what is our purpose?
Myth gave my bedtime its ritual and its closure. My mother and my father, in particular, liked history. H.G. Well's Outline of History and Homer's Iliad and the Odyssey were my bedtime stories. So, myth is personal and the world beyond my bedroom door first made sense, was made familiar to me, through myth.
