FLAG’s two-decade survey of artist Dan Fischer’s grid-based, graphite-on-paper drawings features over seventy works that span from 1999 to 2021, and highlights Fischer’s iterative exploration of the photographic medium, mechanical reproduction, and the idea of making an original copy—a “handmade readymade” or “retro-appropriation.” Fischer’s practice, like all appropriation art, raises questions about originality, authenticity, and authorship, and belongs to the long modernist tradition that questions the nature and/or definition of art itself. By conflating mass-produced photographs of art historical significance with the trace effects of an intensely handmade production, Fischer’s drawings operate between subjectivity and objectivity; they create a new situation, and therefore alternative meanings for extant images.
