saturday night/sunday morning

i got home pretty late tonight, but still wanted to finish this piece so i could take it along with some others to get framed tomorrow. i'm pretty excited and a little bummed out about tomorrow...the final episode of "lost". i've just recently become a huge fan of the show, so i'm sorry to see it end. i won't go off any more on that tangent... this piece is appropriately titled "l'amour"
goodnight, world.

newton revisited

i was recently commissioned by a collector friend of mine to "free newton". dave is much better with explaining what he had in mind in terms of concept, so i asked him if he could send me a quote that i could post along with the pieces. i've posted the quote below the art. the first image is "newton" by william blake, and below that is my response inspired by his piece, which i've titled "enter spectrum".

"Romantic artist William Blake banished scientist Isaac Newton to the depths of some sea, wrongfully imprisoning him inside an unmovable rock by locking his leg in place and forcing Newton to gaze down with great focus, self-absorbed: as if blind to the beauty of the world around him.

This view expressed an inherent disdain for science, that Newton had the audacity to “reduce” nature into deterministic explanations — into natural laws that allegedly eroded the mystical, metaphorical heart of art and even suppressed personal interactions with an active God.

The human species, however, uses science to better understand not only the reality in which we exist but also this same reality of which we are made. And this understanding can lead to greater feelings of interconnection with the world and with each other, not less.

Newton supplied humanity with the beginnings of several groundbreaking insights, later refined (as is often the case in science) by many, including Einstein, who improved rather counterintuitively upon the notions of time and gravity.

Freeing Newton from this imprisonment should have occurred long ago; and with the march of progress and a longing for enlightenment, we as a species may continue to attempt to assess the real nature of reality, rather than deluding ourselves with our own inventions, beautiful as they may be.

Physicist Richard Feynman generalizes the overall point quite well:"--dave fischer

i had a great time working on this commission. thank you, dave...

top secret...but not really

i made this piece for an upcoming project, but it won't be used for that after all. i'll mention the project soon when i find out more about it. i'm really happy with the piece either way.

i did this cover a while back, and it's finally going to be released. the book is a great read, and it was optioned by Spike Jonze, so read it before it hits the big screen. below is the original painting before design. i painted the balloon separately, so it was added on digitally along with the type. this is the final design. i love what the art director did with the final. kudos to paul buckley for his design skills.

i've added the amazon link below, just in case you were interested in picking it up.
