April 1st – May 5th, 2015
Departing from her usual watercolor medium, Isis Fisher presents Entanglement, a collection of black and white drawings, at Stumptown Downtown.
“These works focus on interweaving forms, organic pattern, and varying, uneven symmetry. Although the lines are clean, the symmetry is often distorted which gives it a very human element. In these drawings, I use the juxtaposition of various textures and patterns to create a tapestry of interlocking imagery, smaller forms creating a larger image. Often when I begin a piece, I have no pre-conceived notion of the outcome. I allow the work to develop gradually and spontaneously.”
Isis Fisher is a self-taught artist from Maui, Hawaii who now lives and works in Portland, Oregon. Her first exhibition opened at Breeze Block Gallery in 2010. Since then, she has shown in many small venues and galleries both in Portland and Hawaii. Most recently, she showed her first collection of black and white drawings at the Flaming Lips’ gallery, The Womb, in Oklahoma City. Entanglement is her first time showing at Stumptown Downtown.
