Abstract

‘Studio Models’ is a new iteration of an ongoing collaborative project between James Fisher and the Scotland-based sculptor Kate McLeod. In a previous part of the project, monotypes were made in a single weekend using a bespoke woodcut press. McLeod and Fisher rapidly drew on materials and visual language from their individual practices to bring to the collaboration. McLeod, for example, found ways of compelling the clay, familiar in her sculptural work, to operate within a printmaking process. ‘Studio Models’ represents another way of Fisher and McLeod considering working cooperatively. Fisher’s recent work deploys motifs that relate to the Japanese phenomenon of kigurumi, which roughly translates as “dressing up as a stuffed toy”. The references are used to explore particular kinds of narratives that are used in his work to conflate biography or fact, with fiction.
