About Brandon Fisher

Brandon Fisher was born and raised in Edgartown. His native Island heritage can be traced back to Martha's Vineyard's original settlers. His lineage includes whalers, sword fishermen and other mariners. The harsh realities and physical beauties of the sea inform and infuse his original artwork. Largely self-taught, he has been immersed in the Arts his entire life. He specializes in old master techniques in particular influenced by Rembrandt and Vermeer. Winslow Homer and Andrew Wyeth among others have also made strong impressions on his work. Powerful, bold brushstrokes and a sensitive eye for detail give his work a living, dynamic presence. He is particularly drawn to the mystical hues of dusk and dawn when light and shadows preform their delicate dance. Skillful brushstrokes of confidence with a wild sense of color scheme have set Brandon's work apart. Always testing the boundaries, his compositions combine dramatic escaping light with rapid brushstrokes giving way to a dramatic effect leading one to a surprisingly accessible world of techniques. His subtle control of the palette knife meeting delicate glazes merges scenes to paint with 'what the ocean has to blend'.

'Many of my ancestors were whalers/seafarers making their living from the sea. Generation after generation has drawn from the power of the sea. My painting is much like sailing, always adjusting with weather and wind and light. My goal is not to imitate the sea or blandly record it, but to paint honestly always knowing the painters of the past are my true critics'

Brandon's paintings are included in many private collections including Ruth Gordon, Garson Kanin, William Graves, Edward Swenson, Rose Styron, Jeremy Taylor and Martha's Vineyard painter Allen Whiting.
