From February 2-23, 2018, New City Arts presents What Everything is Made Of, new works by VM FISK.
"My work is an abstraction of what surrounds me, the confusion and discovery of daily life simplified into shape, line and color. Each piece is a meditation, evolving disorder to semi-order, finding pattern in chaos and heartache. In a modern world where things are increasingly fabricated by computers I strive to show the human hand. These works were all created after coming home to Virginia after 10 years away out west.
my whole life I've seen patterns in everything around me"
MEET THE ARTIST
VM FISK (Virginia Madison) was born and raised on a horse farm near the Blue Ridge Mountains of central Virginia. She studied painting and video art at California Institute of the Arts and sculpture at Virginia Commonwealth University. After several years in the film industry designing and building sets, Fisk quit to pursue her own work. In 2014, she won the the Herradura Barrel Art regional competition and in 2016 was featured as one of Tribeza Magazine’s 10 to watch. VM Fisk is an animal lover, realistic optimist and dad joke fan. She is nice, you’d probably be friends with her.
