Vernon Fisher

Born: 1943

Born in Texas, Vernon Fisher began making art on a professional basis in the 1970s. Influenced by Los Angeles artists Ed Ruscha, John Baldessari, and William Wegman, his attraction to mixed-media installations that combine written text, photography, and found objects links him to conceptual art. His works are visual narratives, using slang and colloquial language, that explore the nature of storytelling. Drawing his subjects from everyday observations and childhood experiences, his stories are ambiguous in meaning. Seeing the symbols and signs of society as culturally constructed, with underlying political and economic implications, Fisher questions any notion of an objective reality.
