Vashon Island, WA. artist Brian Fisher loves the spontaneity of monotype printmaking. The process encourages experimentation and by mixing media, he creates some exciting results.
“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 ‘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.”
