Exhibition of works using discarded print material by Glenn Fischer opens at Sara Nightingale Gallery

WATER MILL, NY.- Sara Nightingale Gallery  presents, Glenn Fischer, Tales of a Librarian. 

Glenn Fischer describes his repurposing of discarded and outdated print material as an act of rescue. Old textbooks, album covers and magazines, as well as books from the 50's and 60's found in used bookstores provide the source material for his geometric abstract collages. Fischer cuts and pastes manually - there is no digital element to his work - so that characters, text and illustrations are extracted from their original context and rearranged, acquiring new meaning from juxtaposition. The results are playful non-linear narratives with a nostalgic, but contemporary tone.  

Fischer's decisions about color and line allow him to explore formal possibilities. He selects his source materials in response to life experiences, both as a child and as an adult. Visual, literary and musical memories permeate the work, and just as memories develop and evolve over time, so do the narratives in Fischer's collages. It is the act of recycling of memory and material that brings a sense of renewal and evolution to the work. The free association of textual context by the viewer provides a different experience for each observer. 

Glenn Fischer lives and works in Bronx, NY. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. He has had solo exhibitions in NYC as well as Southern California, and group shows in Miami, Philadelphia and Boston. He received a BA in Art from Armstrong Atlantic State University and an MA from New York University. Fischer’s work was cataloged in the anthology, "Cutting Edges: Contemporary Collage" by the Berlin publisher, Gestalten. In 2015 his work will be included in the AIM Biennial at The Bronx Museum of the Arts.

The Project Room showcases works by Bill Armstrong, William Pagano, Ross Watts, Brian O'Leary, Gus Yero, Malin Abrahamsson, Bonnie Rychlack and Cara Enteles on a rotating basis.

The exhibition will continue through September 17.
