About The Artwork

Year: 2019 Style: fine art,others,abstract Description: In the fall of 2019, the artist Samuel Harris Fisher took a week off work to complete a plein air painting* every day. On the second day, while walking along the Rivanna, which is a river in the central part of Virginia, United States, the artist noticed how beautifully the steep bank on the opposite side of the river was catching the light. He had the urge to capture this beautiful moment forever on canvas. It was a fleeting moment, but the artist was able to capture it. In the painting, the viewers can see the splendid effect that the light made and the different layers of clouds. The brush strokes in the painting were soft and careful, which gave the painting a romantic feel. *Plein air painting is about escaping the four walls of your studio and painting and drawing in the open air.

Samuel Harris Fisher

Fisher was born and raised in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The young forests that now grow from these ancient bones either instilled or simply matched Fisher's quiet yet youthful soul. Despite finding success in a career in technology and business, Fisher found the modern working world to be too loud, too busy, and somehow divorced from reality. Having found meaningful ground to stand on in mysticism and the stillness of the forest, they are now taking the leap into the unknown of the creative life.

Fisher's attempt to resurrect archaic stories and archetypes through their art was inspired by our modern desperation for meaning. This proved to be a path towards contrivance.

In their thirties, they began channeling their art exclusively through a mystic process. Putting their critical, conceptual mind aside, they instead attended to the richness of their lived experience and became saturated with qualia. Being attentive in this non-conceptual way allows raw experiences to find their way to the deep mind, where Fisher believes true meaning is cultivated rather than constructed. Fisher now allows the harvest of cultivated meaning to percolate up from the deep without question. Like a dream, the resulting work is mysterious and compelling, not conveying meaning but inviting the blossoming of meaning in the soul of the viewer. Fisher considers the paintings that result from this process to be more akin to sermons, poetry, or mystical utterances than to contrived conceptual art.
