MEET THE ARTIST OPENING  

Friday ~ June 2, 2017 ~ 7pm-9pm

Craig Fisher is a resident of Toledo, Ohio. He received in Bachelor degree for the University of Toledo, School of Design in 1976. Craig has worked in various positions as a technical Illustrator, graphic designer and more recently as a concept artist. For the past 15 years, he has helped develop visual learning material that, by way of metaphor, unbundles complex issues facing employees and consumers. He has worked to develop learning tools that help millions of people world-wide manage chronic disease states such as diabetes and congestive heart failure.

Craig is a passionate independent printmaker constantly exploring new and exciting ways to use today’s technology in the creative process while being faithful to time-honored printmaking practices. (intaglio, traditional relief as well as Japanese woodblock printing) Craig has exhibited both nationally and abroad. His works are included public and private collections such as Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, Purdue University and the University of Dallas. Craig works from his studio/home Ibis Press Studio and has two solo and various group gallery exhibits scheduled for 2017.

The artwork being displayed at the Huron Valley Council for the Arts Gallery is a melding of contemporary and traditional print processes. Many of the works shown employ a series of steps culminating in an etched copper plate which is inked and prepared for printing onto paper. The paper is passed through the “etching press” where the pressure of the moving roller and bed transfer the inked plate to paper. (like paper money).

Craig Fisher will, on occasion, preprint color elements onto thin Kozo (Japanese paper) and with the use of paste, “sandwich” the etched image and digital color matrix together.

Craig’s imagery explores the art of the “Fantastic”. His most current prints and drawings explore the contrast of recent scientific realities, against the material backdrop of historical time-honored religious and cultural foundations.
