Bio and Statement
Over the past decade I have been creating a series of paintings called “Ornaglyphs”. These surreal, gouache paintings feature a crazy cast of bird-like characters and a hieroglyphic non-language that is open to interpretation. The paintings started off as comic panels and have now morphed into clustered, layered abstract paintings. I pull inspiration from pretty much anything I encounter but mainly from observations from long walks in swampy areas or from hanging out in my backyard studying plantlife up close. Each painting is a spontaneous experiment with color and shapes colliding. When people experience my work I want them to get lost and find new things. I love when people tell me what they see.
Mindy Fisher grew up in a small town in New Hampshire where she took as many art classes as she possibly could, including attending courses at The River Gallery Art School in Brattleboro, VT. In 1998 she moved to Chicago to study Set Design at Columbia College. She stayed in Chicago and focused on painting, cartooning, and self taught herself animation. She also had the opportunity to teach youth cartooning and sewing at Right Brained Studio in Oak Park, IL. She now lives in Vermont where she has a home studio. Mindy has shown work in Chicago, IL, Cincinatti, OH, Rutland, VT, Lafayette, LA, Portland, OR, and Clifton Springs, NY and has sold work to collectors around the globe. She recently participated in Vermont Studio Center’s Artist Week residency.
