Johansson Projects presents Into the Blue, a solo show by Matthew F Fisher. Part moony Florida evenings, part castaway, part neo-pastel, part noir, part performative water works, part astro-physic – all of Fisher’s paintings approach the perfect through the imperfect. There’s a level of completeness, of polish, of finish to each painting, while still basking in the hand drawn. The quivering stillness of a strait line amplifies the unseen human energy.
These are images of a moment, maybe several, that have happened or will. They’re not magical or surreal or overtly spiritual. Rather they are once-in-a-life-time action frozen at just the right instant: everything aligns, everything you’ve ever done has lead up to right now, right here.
