Friends and Family: The Figurative Works of Miguel Carter-Fisher

February, 2019

Reception: February 18th, 4:00-6:00pm

Come join us for an exhibition of 36 drawings and paintings by artist Miguel Carter-Fisher. The work featured was selected from a body of work spanning the last decade.

While the human figure has been Miguel’s primary subject the title “figurative painter” has never sat well with him.

“I don’t paint bodies, I paint people.”

Miguel is not interested in the body as an aesthetic object, but as an expressive extension of The individual personalities he is representing. For this reason Miguel often works with family and friends and draws heavily on memory.
