George Fischer Art

American, b. 1957
GEORGE FISCHER (American, born 1957) The tension between the artistic traditions of realism and abstraction is nowhere more acute than in the art of George Fischer. Born in Chicago in 1956, George honed his natural drawing gifts by training at Chicago’s American Academy of Art, a conservative institution whose rigorous program is based in 19th-century realist practices. Fischer’s technical facility is unexcelled, and he became a master of still-life, landscape and figurative studies. But the complacency of this approach bothered him. He made a break in the early 1990’s, coinciding with his move to New Mexico, when he began to explore a more complex attitude toward imagery.     Experimenting with images and improvising associations more intuitively, he became a visual poet. Articles of clothing, household utensils, fancy decorated cakes and pies, children’s toys and gardening implements were juxtaposed with natural twigs, roots, leaves, flowers, fruits and vegetables in a private meditation on middle-class lifestyle and the cottage-garden presence of nature. Since he paints directly from his subjects the arrangements were free-associational and yet painstakingly organized. Along the way, he began to re-evaluate his relationship to the larger tradition of the art of painting, and eventually he had to confront the legacy of formalist abstraction, which had been proscribed by his training. His engagement with the language of abstraction transformed his pictorial resources, expanding his vocabulary of visual forms as well as his painterly handling. The result is an extraordinary postmodernist hybrid, rich with possibilities.

36x24 “Cosmic Cliffs” James Webb Telescope Space Photography NASA Fine Art Print
Located in Los Angeles, CA
The WEBB imagery is of the most important imagery every taken. The finest museum quality WEBB images available. Printed on archival photographic paper using archival inks What looks much like craggy mountains on a moonlit evening is actually the edge of a nearby, young, star-forming region NGC 3324 in the Carina Nebula. Captured in infrared light by the Near-Infrared Camera (NIRCam) on NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope, this image reveals previously obscured areas of star birth. Called the Cosmic Cliffs, the region is actually the edge of a gigantic, gaseous cavity within NGC 3324, roughly 7,600 light-years away. The cavernous area has been carved from the nebula by the intense ultraviolet radiation and stellar winds from extremely massive, hot, young stars located in the center of the bubble, above the area shown in this image. The high-energy radiation from these stars is sculpting the nebula’s wall by slowly eroding it away. NIRCam – with its crisp resolution and unparalleled sensitivity – unveils hundreds of previously hidden stars, and even numerous background galaxies. Several prominent features in this image are described below. -- The “steam” that appears to rise from the celestial “mountains” is actually hot, ionized gas and hot dust streaming away from the nebula due to intense, ultraviolet radiation. -- Dramatic pillars rise above the glowing wall of gas, resisting the blistering ultraviolet radiation from the young stars. -- Bubbles and cavities are being blown by the intense radiation and stellar winds of newborn stars. -- Protostellar jets and outflows, which appear in gold, shoot from dust-enshrouded, nascent stars. -- A “blow-out” erupts at the top-center of the ridge, spewing gas and dust into the interstellar medium. -- An unusual “arch” appears, looking like a bent-over cylinder. This period of very early star formation is difficult to capture because, for an individual star, it lasts only about 50,000 to 100,000 years – but Webb’s extreme sensitivity and exquisite spatial resolution have chronicled this rare event. Located roughly 7,600 light-years away, NGC 3324 was first catalogued by James Dunlop...

"Look at your feet. You are standing in the sky. When we think of the sky, we tend to look up, but the sky actually begins at the earth" Diane Ackerman In his Landscape painting’s James finds a constantly engaging conversation, a dialogue between light, air, and the earth. The subject has been a fascination which has established his reputation and crucial in developing his painting philosophy. These works are not of specific topography or familiar sites, it is James’ intention that they are a culmination of his experiences, memories and imagination. “I think it’s the role of an artist to make something which goes beyond a technical representation of what they see. In the same way that fiction can brings the writer and subject together, I trust the physical process of painting to reveal something which is both unique to me and communicates something others can feel is true” James Naughton 2016 ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Oil paint on board Total size of framed painting : 31.2 H x 31 W x 3 D cm  Sold framed SIZE OF IMAGE: Height: 14.5 cm  Width:14.2 cm  Depth: 1 cm ARTIST BIOGRAPHY: James has been a professional Artist since 1998. Producing oil paintings from Bolton studio(UK) he has created a unique vision of Landscape painting. He has established his reputation through a consistent determination to make art. Trusting instincts which result in emotive experiences for him and the viewer. His work emerges from three preoccupations, light, landscape and the nature of paint, these combine to result in paintings that link tradition and a modern visual experience. James values direct observation, as a traditional way to record the Landscape but is also drawn to communicating the interplay between what we see and our imagination, forging bonds between experience and mythology. His process does not normally involve preparation, sketching or photography, he finds that inviting the natural movement of oil paint to suggest the direction of a work, in an intuitive way, provides the most exciting challenge. James has exhibited widely in the UK and at numerous acclaimed international Art Fairs. Recently his personal interest in the art of Thomas Moran led to an ambitious Arts Council funded project and included a two week road trip in Yellowstone, National Park, The Teton Range and Green River(Wyoming USA) . The project culminated in an extensive exhibition in the public art gallery of his home town Bolton. This year James’ passion for the American Landscape will develop further as he has been awarded a four week residency at Teton Art...
