Art Studio Tour: Brain Fisher

Brain's work is about story, although the story only emerges after he has been working with the shapes and colors for awhile. The stories that emerge, informed by Brian's extensive reading, are most often rooted in mythology, especially Greek mythology. Why?

"It's so pervasive," Brian says, "that it has become invisible.  Our movie plots are based on the conquering hero myth; the good society overcomes the bad society. Myth influences how we think now."

Brian want his art to stimulate questions. He is looking forward to the conversations his paintings and mono-prints will inspire during the tour.
