Timothy Fisher was born in Boston in 1951, grew up in Washington, DC and Africa. He has lived for the last 35 years in rural northern Vermont. He studied art and architecture at the Rhode Island School of Design and has worked in sculpture, furniture-making, and ceramics in addition to the two-dimensional mixed-media collage technique shown here.

I lived six years of my childhood in Africa, which, together with my parents’ interest in African sculpture, has had significant influence on my art. I have expanded this interest to a love of indigenous folk art from around the world. In addition to sculpture, I have worked as a furniture maker, art teacher, house designer/builder, maple syrup farmer, and blown glass ornament designer. I have written two juvenile how-to building books and an adult book on vegetable gardening. I recently moved into a stone house that I built myself in Cornwall, Vermont.

These paintings are a new departure for me in the last two years. I have been making carved wood sculptures since the late 1960's. The paintings were prompted by my spending a period of the Vermont winter in Mexico. I wanted to continue art work during that period. But attempting to take home wood sculptures on the airplane seemed overwhelming. So paintings were an exciting, and much more portable change. Now that I've started, I continue my work back in Vermont.

These are multi-media pieces. They combine acrylic paint, fabrics and papers. Different elements of the final paintings are painted on or glued to art canvas. These are then cut out separately, arranged together and glued down to he painting. I have the freedom of re-arranging, discarding, or re-making the individual elements. sometimes the end result is quite different from what I had originally anticipated.

I have recently begun to produce limited edition giclée prints of some of the paintings, beginning with "Garden of Innocents".
