Born, raised, and still living in Fort Worth, Texas, multimedia painter Vernon Fisher is best known for his multilayered compositions, in which disparate images are superimposed upon one another. Quietly satirical, Vernon chooses his appropriations carefully, for both their graphic elegance and historical symbolism.
