ABOUT THE ARTIST
Dina Fisher is a painter and a lawyer. While a student at Brown University, she studied art while earning a degree in literature. After twenty years as a litigator, she left private practice to study for six years at the Yale School of Art as a non-matriculating student. Her work has appeared in juried exhibitions at the New Britain Museum of American Art.
ART AS TESTIMONY, AS HYPOTHESIS, AS RESPONSE
My work explores issues of memory and invention. I use images as an alternative language. My pictures address lacunae in time, in memory. Each is an effort to answer a question. Often, I paint from photographs of lost family, of strangers on the street, of mysterious places.
Underlying this work is a commitment to acknowledging the heart.
At the end of the day, I hope to say a true thing in each piece.
