In this hushed, unsettling scene, a woman sits up in what appears to be an indoor tent, while the shadow of unknown figure looms against the exterior of the sheer fabric. This piece displays the undercurrents of sexual dysfunction and emotional tension present in many of Eric Fischl's works.
Raised against a backdrop of alcoholism and in a country-club culture obsessed with image over content, Fischl became focused early on in his practice on the rift between what was experienced and what could not be said. These works are examples of his early "psychosexual suburban dramas" and expose the dysfunctional dark side of family life.
About the Artist
About Eric Fischl
He first gained the art world's attention in the late 1970s for his depictions of the dark side of suburban life. Fischl's paintings from that time dealt with issues of early sexuality and voyeurism, while his most recent large-scale canvases focus on the tradition of bull fighting. Despite the diversity of subject matter, Fischl's work is consistent in its exploration of human relationships. Married to artist April Gornik, Fischl is a senior critic at the New York Academy of Art and a fellow at both the American Academy of Arts and Letters and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.Read Less
