Chad Fisher Artist Statement

I am inspired by nature to create a visual language to communicate with the world around me. My early interest in nature matured to an absolute admiration for one of nature’s most beautiful creations, the human figure. My work looks back through the history of sculptural forms and engages contemporary art themes and my relationship to the figure today.

Learning to cast figures in bronze was not a linear path. Even harder than learning to cast in bronze was trying to find authentic information about the figure. After the 18th century formal instruction faded, the figure did not generally include discussion of how ligaments muscles and bones anatomically connect so that the body can represent movement, energy and dance. For 12 years I traveled the United States and Europe piecing together my personal solutions to Fine Art Figurative Sculpture.

When I am not in the studio/foundry I am spending time with my family. My incredible wife and I have 4 amazing children and a Bernese Mountain Dog/Poodle. In 2019 I began studying Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
