ERIC FISCHL "BEACH" DRAWING, 1993
Eric Fischl (b. 1948) is a provocative and prolific American artist who has worked in a host of mediums; sculpture, mosaic, paint and printmaking.
Since the 1980's he has been admired internationally as one of the most daring and distinct figurative painters.
Fischl's work is typically infused with a pending emotional, sexual or psychological violence.
His expertise and fame lays with his distinctive renderings of the body, whether in a vulnerable state or sexualized.
This work, "Untitled (Beach Scene)" is a paradigm of his work.
The viewer is confronted with two expertly rendered bodies. Do they have any relation to each-other? Is there a narrative here?
This ambiguity is exemplary of Fischl's finest work.
