|"Anthem", (Small Town Boy) & "The Band Played On", (
Never Can Say Goodby), by Brian Fisher, Monotype Print with wood bas-relief. |
"Anthem" in gold and "The Band Played On" in green, above, are two of five collagraph monotype and wood bas-relief window installations I printed and carved for the Vashon Heritage Museum's "In and Out, Being LGBTQ+ on Vashon Island". Designed by Jessica DeWire and curated by Ellen Kritzman and Stephen Silha, the exhibit is showing now through March 2020.
My window installations are inspired by the coming out “Anthems”, the music my Gay friends have shared and that I subsequently have listened to while planning, printing and assembling each element of this music inspired installation.
The Bronskie Beat song "Small Town Boy" is a personal favorite and is my inspiration for "Anthem".
