About

Fischl's "Untitled" monoprint is an interesting contemporary take on a similar theme by Michelangelo's "Creation of Adam" from the Sistine Chapel where two male figures relatively nude are engage in a symbolic exchange of touch. Fischl's piece is more in the spirit of erotica as one figure touches the genitals of the other figure. Both Fischl's and Michelangelo's pieces could be said to relate to the act of creation and/or the source of creation. Fischl's paintings for the most part are erotic in subject matter. He has embraced the description of himself as a painter of the suburbs, not generally considered subject matter prior to his generation. Some of Fischl's earlier works have a theme of adolescent sexuality and voyeurism. Fischl is an American painter, sculptor, printmaker, draughtsman and educator. He is known for his paintings depicting American suburbia from the 1970s and 1980s. Eric was born in New York City and grew up on suburban Long Island; his family moved to Phoenix, Arizona, in 1967. His art education began at Phoenix College for two years, followed with studying at Arizona State University. He then studied at the California Institute of the Arts in Valencia, California, where he received a B.F.A. in 1972. He then moved to Chicago, taking a job as a guard at the Museum of Contemporary Art. Between 1974 and 1978 he taught at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax, Nova Scotia. It was at this school where he met his future wife, painter April Gornik. In 1978, he moved back to New York City. Fischl is a trustee and senior critic at the New York Academy of Art and President of the Academy of the Arts at Guild Hall of East Hampton. In addition to receiving Guild Hall's Academy of the Art's Lifetime Achievement Award in 1994, Fischl was extended the honor of membership to the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 2006. Without the frame the Monoprint measures 23.50" h x 18" w.
