Working from photocopied images taken from art catalogues, magazines, and other reference materials, [Dan] Fischer’s drawings are, as described by art historian and curator Robert Hobbs, “Xerox realistic.” Influenced by Marcel Duchamp, Andy Warhol, and the broader history of appropriation and reproduction, Fischer creates a 1:1 ratio between the photocopied source and drawn image through the use of the grid. While the finished drawings appear photorealistic from a distance, upon closer inspection, grid lines and nuances from the graphite pencil impressions remains visible as both a formal and physical reminder of the mechanics of their reproduction. Fischer said of this process, “the drawings are highly analytical, both formally and conceptually. Line by line, I try to make these past moments of art history come back to life, to be more exotic, or more surreal than they actually were (perhaps all stories are told this way). I try to reproduce the excitement of a special moment or location in art history, and to celebrate the role of artists as myth, or as icon…the intense attention to detail, the touch of graphite on paper, and the passionate rendering of my favorite subjects are the driving forces of the project.”

BOOK LAUNCH: “NICOLAS PARTY: PASTEL”
Wednesday, August 4, 6-8 PM
Karma Bookstore, 136 East 3rd Street, New York, NY 10009

“In 2019, the artist transformed The FLAG Art Foundation in Chelsea into a rose-colored stage set for a group of Rococo-inspired murals that served as both a backdrop for, and a foil to, a selection of pastels from the 18th century to the present. This book celebrates the exhibition and its wide range of artists, from Mary Cassatt and Edgar Degas to Toyin Ojih Odutola and Chris Ofili. 'Pastel' was published by the FLAG foundation and produced by Karma. It includes contributions from Party and Dodie Kazanjian, as well as conversations with artists including Louis Fratino, Loie Hollowell, and Billy Sullivan.” -Eileen Kinsella for artnet: https://news.artnet.com/art-world/editors-picks-august-2-2021-19926

“Nicole Eisenman and Keith Boadwee” closes this Saturday, March 13, 2021, at The FLAG Art Foundation. The recipient of 2020 Suzanne Deal Booth / FLAG Art Foundation Prize, Eisenman created thematically-linked solo exhibitions for The Contemporary Austin and FLAG. Eisenman expanded the exhibition at FLAG to include artist Keith Boadwee; their shared use of humor and critical observation questions both real and imagined power structures, upends art history, and lampoons notions of “good taste.”
