Eric Fischl (I)


Eric Fischl, The bed, the chair, play, 2001.


I would like to say that central to my work is the feeling of awkwardness and self-consciousness that one experiences in the face of profound emotional events in one's life. These experiences, such as death, or loss, or sexuality, cannot be supported by a life style that has sought so arduously to deny their meaningfulness, and a culture whose fabric is so worn out that its public rituals and attendant symbols do not make for adequate clothing. One, truly, does not know how to act! Each new event is a crisis, and each crisis is a confrontation that fills us with much the same axiety we feel when, in a dream, we discover ourselves naked in public.

Eric Fischl movimenta-se num universo estratégicamente americano, desenvolvendo um amplo olhar crítico sobre uma das características fundamentais do american way of life: a liberdade de invenção subjugada a um conjunto de rituais e símbolos públicos extremamente estereotipados. Este olhar tem as sua raízes nos romances de Kerouac, narra a relação entre uma lógica íntima do eu e a hipocrisia de um conjunto de regras a respeitar que são, a cada momento violadas, gerando um mundo que é insistentemente um out there, recheado de subtilezas e preversidades para um ego inocente. Este é o território imagético de Fischl.
