November 3-25, 2017 Brian Fisher and Denise Kester
From two Northwest printmaking artists come distinctive imagery that is
derived from personal studies of mythology, legends and dreams.
Brian Fisher “My subjects are the myths and stories that encompass how our world came to be, who we are, what happens when we die and because we live now, in this moment in time, what is our purpose? This year I’ve explored stories of the vegetative deities like Europe’s “Green Man”, Japan’s “Kodama” and the Greek myths about Goddesses Demeter and Persephone. A wealth of parallel myth exists to explore and explain our natural world in supernatural ways across time and cultures.”
A vegetation deity can be a god or goddess and whose story of disappearance and reappearance, or life, death and rebirth embodies the growth cycle of plants. “I love these ancient stories.” Albus, Celtic Green Man Collograph print. 11 3/4 x 7 3/4. http://www.brianfisherart.com
Denise Kester ” I am an artist working to tell stories from my heart, stories that I dream and that dream me. I am painting, drawing, and creating images that have a life of their own. I am aware of the state of the world. It troubles and saddens me. Sometimes when I am worried I will create the most lighthearted images. These are the images that come and I do my best to let them tell their story. Some of the stories are in the title and that is enough. Some of the pieces have more to say. I think sometimes the images are trying to cheer me up. Life can be hard but life is also full of beauty and stories that are silly and absurd and just as important and maybe more.” A Moment of Harmonious Balance Monotype 20 X 26 http://drawingonthedream.com
