Dean Fisher
Dean Fisher has been a painter and draughtsman for over thirty years. He has exhibited extensively throughout the U.S. in prominent galleries such as Hirschl & Adler Modern, New York, NY; The Tatistcheff Gallery, New York, NY; Cacciola Gallery, New York, NY; and Prographica Gallery in Seattle, WA.
In the late 1980s and early 1990s, Dean spent eight years in Spain, France and England painting, studying and copying the masters in major European museums as a form of study. Dean’s paintings and drawings can be found in many private and corporate collections throughout North America and Europe. Dean and his artist wife, Josephine Robinson, live in Milford, Connecticut.

“There are certain things I see which I know I have to paint, this can be many different subjects but is usually an assemblage of forms and colours which create a compelling compositional structure.
Just about any object bathed in light is extremely beautiful to me, this can be difficult because I want to paint everything…but I try to keep it limited to those subjects which scream “paint me” the loudest.
I really don’t want to analyze beforehand why a subject speaks to me so much because this is very complex, so many things enter into this equation.
By defining the reasons too much I fear that my response to the subject will be too pre-meditated, based on assumptions and a fragment of what is really there, all which I believe can inhibit the outcome. Instead I just jump in and with my knowledge, experience and skills try to put everything I see, think and feel about the subject into the painting.
This most often leads to a more satisfying result and a painting which I feel is a more complete representation of who I am.”
