About John Fisher

John Fisher is an American artist who spent twenty years in Italy, perfecting his craft in the shadow of Michelangelo. He`s a man of intense passion and outstanding skills who takes a profoundly philosophical approach to art and its impact on communities. For over thirty years, his public, on-site carvings have fascinated the communities to which he is invited, as they observe his intuitive process. Without models or preliminary sketches, Fisher magically pulls figures out of the stone. The John Fisher Project, which is very social in scope, brings together the artist, the material, the audience, and the setting in a way in which it amplifies the beauty and strength of each.

Artist Statement of John Fisher

Creating is a profoundly philosophical and spiritual act of faith. My work is spontaneous and intuitive, but built upon years of observation and the discipline of drawing. I have lived and worked for many years in Europe, primarily in Italy, giving me a notable lean towards the classical. However my approach is initially abstract. I begin without models or drawings, creating movements and a rich surface texture, which stimulates ideas. Once I see my vision, it is refined using a technique of carving only the profile lines of my subject, until all points of view align and the image is realized.

Some of my works are public on-site carvings, which are educational demonstrations of my creative process. By including the public, new and socially significant sculptures are born. The impact of witnessing the birthing of the sculpture extends out into the community, uniting people in a common experience.
