Project Description

Jake Fischer

 

Jake Fischer, a New York based painter born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, graduated with a Masters of Fine Art from Arizona State University (ASU) in Drawing and Painting. While at ASU he was awarded accolades including the Benjamin Wong Fie Scholarship, Eirene Peggy Lamb Scholarship, and the Gerry Grout Award. Jake recently attended the Art Students League of New York’s residency program where he received the Ruth Katzman Scholarship. In 2016, Jake had his first solo exhibition in New York, Between Light, at Island Weiss Gallery. He also took part in Into the Night: Contemporary Art and the Nocturne Tradition at the Tucson Museum of Art. This fall Jake will mount a solo exhibition at SMINK Inc. in Dallas, Texas. Jake paints on handmade wooden panels that he crafts using a Japanese hand-saw, and his work is conceptually driven by ideas such as awareness, cognizance, thought, and engagement.
