Historical Context:
Tim Fischer joined the Art and Design faculty and began coordinating the Drawing Program at GVSU in 1998. His personal work explores both complex and seemingly conventional relationships. He draws on the visual traditions of painting while exploring iconography, archetypes and narratives. On this work he reflects, “The current work presented begins with the detection of curiously staged stories, events, or notions I have come upon. Anecdotal forms, symbols, and imagery are the flesh best suited to both reveal and veil the humor and misfortune of everyday tales."
