Dan Fischer makes meticulous graphite drawings of well-known images of artists and their work from the mid-twentieth century to the present day. Whether based on iconic portraits of acclaimed artists or images of an iconic artwork itself, each drawing by Fischer takes a photographic image with unmistakable meaning within narratives of contemporary art history and refashions it as an object of art. Fischer was born in Brooklyn, NY, and currently lives and works in Long Island, NY.
