May 17 – June 10Artist-Attended Opening: Saturday, May 20, 1-3 p.m.add to my calendar

In Jake Fischer’s paintings, the word interpermeate represents the idea that light and dark are equally and mutually pervasive in defining space just as the physical environment and our mental processes are equally and mutually pervasive in defining experience.

In a new interview with American Art Collector, editor Sarah Gianelli asks Fischer about his shadowy streetscapes and their analogy to consciousness, the duality of life’s inner and outer worlds. Fischer says, “Everyday experience relies on both sides of that coin—I’m moving through time and space having a physical experience, but it’s also the thoughts I’m having. They rely on each other to create an entire experience.”

Fischer paints on handmade wooden panels that he crafts using a Japanese hand-saw, and his work is conceptually driven by ideas of awareness, cognizance, thought, and engagement.
Join us for an artist-attended opening reception, Saturday, May 20, from 1-3 p.m.; the exhibition is on view until June 10.
