Is anyone else getting cabin fever? Well here's a good reason to get the eff out of the house: our next First Friday Opening Reception! Come shake off the cobwebs, have a beer with us, and see some new art at Swan Songs: New Works by Karen Fisher. Oh, and Karen likes you so much that she'll be raffling off one of her pieces. Raffle tickets are free one per person, raffle is at 9PM, and the winner must be present to win. You won't want to miss this! Karen collects "found papers" - old posters and signs, images from magazines, menus, or any other paper you may see laying around- and uses them to create multilayer collages that bring to life something new. --- In her own words: In my studio, nothing makes me happier than to work with found papers, paint, and images of the human figure. For me, it's all about reworking a surface multiple times by simplifying shapes; submerging and then excavating to create layers that are obliterated as well as assimilated, until something interesting happens. My solo show, Swan Songs, is inspired by my obsession with the work of the 20th century Austrian figurative painter, Egon Shiele, whose career lasted less than a decade. The Spanish flu outbreak after WWI took not only his life, but the life of his wife Edith, three days before his own. Egon and Edith were married a century ago, in 1915. They are the couple that you see on these mixed-media paintings on paper. I am thrilled to get this new body of work out of my studio and onto the gallery walls at Lowbrow in Denver! ---
