Matthew Fisher | Into The Blue

12-15-2017 09:06 AM CET | Arts & Culture

Press release from: Johansson Projects

Johansson Projects presents Into the Blue, a solo show by Matthew F Fisher. Part moony Florida evenings, part castaway, part neo-pastel, part noir, part performative water works, part astro-physic - all of Fisher's paintings approach the perfect through the imperfect. There's a level of completeness, of polish, of finish to each painting, while still basking in the hand drawn. The quivering stillness of a strait line amplifies the unseen human energy.

These are images of a moment, maybe several, that have happened or will. They're not magical or surreal or overtly spiritual. Rather they are once-in-a-life-time action frozen at just the right instant: everything aligns, everything you've ever done has lead up to right now, right here.

Johansson Projects is a contemporary art gallery in Oakland, CA.

2300 Telegraph Ave, Oakland, CA 94612

JAY NELSON | MAKING LANDS | JUNE 7 - JULY 20
In Jay Nelson’s prodigious body of built work there is always the dare for the viewer to see from a new perspective. To inhabit what he calls new ‘structures for seeing’. A Honda Civic, as a perspective. A tree, as a perspective. A backyard. The dare in Making Lands is to inhabit Nelson’s quiet nights after putting his children to sleep. And to take up that part calm, part strung

ANNA FIDLER + CATHY LU | HER KIND | 5-8PM FRI FEB 1
Cathy Lu and Anna Fidler shape new myths surrounding characters of the past. With bright colors, topographic energy portraits sculpted from layers of paper, and misshapen ceramic imitations, their works declare a distinctly feminine revolution. Inspired by the ancient Chinese myth of the Immortal Peach Garden, where peaches represent longevity and prosperity, and combining that with the sexualized symbols that they are in American pop culture, Lu transforms these peaches
Loop Melody
Opening: Friday December 7 2018 | 5pm - 8pm Here’s one storyline. Here’s another. Here’s an endless number of storylines hovering on the groundless surface. Kaye’s granular drawings are seasonal, even hourly, depictions of light and intimacy. They blanch in the yellow California summer. They fold in, purple and blue, at twilight. The borders disappear as her shapes meander across one another, building conversational layer upon layer. While this close-ness is front

Market Overview First Quarter: Fisher Capital Management

Industrial output also continued to grow at a fast pace in January as companies produced more cars and cement. In the fiscal
