Artist Bio:
James Fisher-Smith is a visual artist working in the mediums of painting, journaling, collage, and installation. In Fisher-Smith's visual language, emotions and memories are transcribed with rapid, calligraphic gestures. Fisher-Smith works to construct personal narratives, where one composition leads to the next through indentations, bleeding ink and subtractions of the page. Fisher-Smith is known in the New York City subway system for his portrait paste-ups that depict passengers. The portraits are taped to the window beside their subject and investigate how a drawing can function as either a surrogate to its subject or simulacra when the subject departs. Fisher-Smith was born in Nevada City California and now works in New York.

Artist Statement:
My art is an attempt to communicate the intensity with which I see and feel.
