Vernon Fisher: K-Mart Conceptualism
Through January 2, 2011
Vernon Fisher: K-Mart Conceptualism is a survey of the artist’s entire career to date, incorporating paintings, sculptures, and installations from the late 1970s to the present, from both public and private collections in the United States and Europe.
The exhibition showcases the early collages that combine abstract painting, text, and image, as well as a selection of many of the artist’s best-known blackboard paintings, in which a faux blackboard surface is used as the ground for realistic, painted vignettes adjacent to fragments of different stories that suggest variously ambiguous meanings.
Fisher has lived and worked in Fort Worth since 1977 and is one of Texas’s most internationally recognized artists.
