Vernon Fisher
‘A Retrospective’

Jul 14, 2015

Culver City

‘A Retrospective’ curated by Hugh Davies is Vernon Fisher‘s third solo show with Mark Moore Gallery. Born in 1943 in Forth Worth, Fisher is one of Texas’ most internationally recognized artists. His works are a visual construction telling narratives through the combination of images and language in a wide range of media.

His works appeal to an American iconology that mixes pop emblems such as Mickey Mouse with a pixelisation method and typical Californian palm trees. All of the elements or superimposed upon one another on a multilayered composition. These special collages allude to an ever lasting American symbolism that is a redundant theme alongside the career of the artist who confides having ‘an attraction to that kind of subject matter, and have written my share of pieces featuring Dairy Queens, grocery stores, Laundromats, third rate hotels, etc.’.

This retrospective presents an overview of a long and productive career. Through the use of maps, comic strips characters, pixels and not so arbitrary paint stains, Vernon Fisher shows his relentless use of media techniques to achieve a very America grounded work.
