William Fisk: New Paintings from the Portrait Series
William Fisk: New Paintings from the Portrait Series at Forum Gallery in New York, NY. "...Forum Gallery premieres the paintings of Toronto-based artist William Fisk in his first New York solo exhibition. New Paintings from the Portrait Series showcases fifteen of the artist’s painstakingly rendered, subtly chromatic canvases, the labor of five years of artistic production. Fisk uses photorealist techniques to explore the invisible histories of familiar objects. Carefully selected and removed from any identifiable context, these vintage slide projectors, opera glasses, cameras and an out-dated computer monitor are presented larger than life, with all of their signs of use amplified and exposed against seemingly white backgrounds."
