An acrylic painting on wood titled The Colored Water by Cincinnati-based artist Jackie Fisher (20th/21st century), created in 2016. Portrayed with loose textural brushstrokes, this work features curving waves in various colors billowing outward from the upper right. The work is unsigned and remains unframed. A descriptive label identifying the work is adhered to the verso.
Born and raised in Cincinnati, Jackie Fisher has been a part of V+V for over three years and has recently graduated from the studio’s intensive Teaching Artist Program, sharing her passion and talent with students at local schools. In her paintings, she often weaves a spiderweb-like labyrinth, encouraging the viewer’s gaze to spiral with her toward the center of her canvas. These painted webs of abstract work could be viewed as landscape maps, detailing in the texture of her brushstrokes, rigid and dry terrain interrupted by moments of turquoise and violet placidity; brown mountain ranges taper off into wheat fields glistening beneath prairie skies. In comparison to these rather neutral-pallet paintings, Fisher is also known for her equally maze-like marker drawings of vibrant colors.
