Do you enjoy this sort of pseudo-cryptic symbolic painting? Well… not painting in the High Art sense, but in the Illustrative sense, maybe? Hustle yourself down to Heskin Contemporary, 443 West 37th, Hell’s Kitchen, and see Matthew Fisher’s new series.
Somebody wrote this:
Obsolete treasures are stacked atop one another to create meaningless shrines to unknown recipients. At first the understanding of these totems is limited to their function: a cup is for drinking, a candle for light, a key for a door, etc. Rather, it is through their precise posting, conscience balance and deliberate centering do these utilitarian meanings become secondary to deeper context and narrative.
Oh, okay. Is that Zoboomafoo?
