Jack Fischer Gallery is pleased to present the face of another, a solo exhibition of Vivienne Flesher’s portrait work. Join us for the opening reception on June 1, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at our Minnesota Street Project gallery. The show will be up through July 13, 2019.

The paintings in this exhibition seem to be informed by fleeting moments of recognition – a recognition and conversation between subject and viewer.

Through an averted gaze filled with secrets and hidden emotions, hidden but alas to no avail, Flesher spares no one. And in spite of the rare direct locking of the eyes with us, we are still left with the mystery of that face, or as the title states: the face of another. Or is it the other?

It’s that persona we do our very best to keep hidden, as it is best for all involved, best to obfuscate our true selves and meanings. 
In spite of all the veiling, Flesher brings us closer to the character of each of these personalities in what might be considered a visual novel.
