Eric Fischl, Untitled (Arching Woman), 2011 glass 24.5" x 9" x 11", edition of 10
Celebrated for his psychologically charged, often visceral figures, Fischl brings his mastery to bear in a variety of media including: sculpture, resin collage, watercolour and works on paper. His recent sculptural editions cast in bronze and glass reveal figures mid-gesture, involved in narratives rendered all the more poignant for their ambiguity. The glass works share a striking affinity to his watercolours in their fragile, fluid, quality. In his collages, Fischl plays with narrative space. Drawing from his vast vocabulary of figures, he arranges provocative scenarios with seemingly endless implications.
