Sophie A. Fischer, Michael Harvey

Gallery "333"

Mr. Harvey offers heavy brushed images of personal maelstroms, a bull-like black blob, and other more formal quickly brushed paintings that bear a relation to material manipulation more than to graphic ideas. Sophie A. Fischer works in a prismatic “synthetic-cubism” that forces still-life or landscape objects to bend to foregone plastic conclusions. In Sparkling Music or Old Barge the works seem to be poetically serene, where crackle tends to add rather than detract from a visual pictorial personality.
