Eric Fischl is a leader among American artists who inaugurated Neo-expressionism in the USA in the 1980s. This movement was a return to the medium of painting in its figurative, expressive dimensions and often painterly potencies that ran parallel to Neo-expressionism in Germany and Italy. He remains prominent thanks to his frank, sometimes disturbing visual explorations of middle-class American mores and peccadillos and his unabashed renditions of the nude, both female and male. Fischl has enduring connections to Canada. He taught at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design from 1974 to 1978, when the school was a fabled hotbed of avant-garde art in North America. While there, he reacted to the dominant Conceptualism of the school with a realist sensibility. His first solo exhibition was curated by Bruce W. Ferguson at the Dalhousie Art Gallery in Halifax in 1975. He was represented by the renowned Sable-Castelli Gallery, Toronto, until Jared Sable’s death in 2012 and continues the connection to that city now at Barbara Edwards Contemporary.
