From the tranquility of a Cape Cod marsh to the the mayhem of Times Square,  Lois Fisher’s brush captures the mood of a particular scene and the emotion that it evokes.

For Fisher, oil paint is the ideal medium for conveying that expression; the buttery texture can be used for energetic impasto brushwork or diluted for delicately transparent effects.

Her subjects range from figures, interiors, cityscapes, and landscapes. She particularly enjoys painting places that she knows intimately: New York City and Cape Cod. Lois Fisher grew up in New York and it is a source of never-ending inspiration, especially the interplay of people, light and architecture. And after decades visiting Cape Cod she has become deeply attached to the magical light and gentle beauty of the Outer Cape. Several of the artists whom she turns to for inspiration are Pissarro, Corot and Monet, all of whom achieved beautiful light effects with colors that are rich but not strident.
