“Catholic Boy” Works on Paper by Bill Fisher, Artist Reception

Hope you can join us Thursday, January 14 (5-8 pm) to help celebrate new work by Bill Fisher in the exhibit “Catholic Boy”.

Fisher moves away from his known abstractions to the anecdotal depiction in “Catholic Boy”, reflecting on his time in parochial school. All works are oil and cold wax on paper measuring 40 x 26″.

Artist Statement:

“These works on paper are a departure from my abstract paintings. At the encouragement of my son, I thought that I would try my hand at something more narrative and autobiographical. This new body of work is based on my childhood memories of catholic school. My interactions with priests and nuns and the iconography of a parochial education provided me with a wealth of subject matter. This work is based on my personal experience and is in no way a pejorative statement on Catholicism.”
