The daughter of a botanist, Naomi Fisher was born and raised in Miami, where a wild and untamed tropical environment serves as the backdrop to the population’s tendency toward artifice and materialistic excess. Fisher frequently explores this culture clash in her work through the lens of feminist theory and strategies derived from surrealist art.
Fisher’s paintings, photographs, and videos have been exhibited internationally in such venues as the Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Halle fur Kunst, Luneburg; Kemper Museum, Kansas City; Kunsthalle Wein, Vienna; Kunsthaus Baselland, Basel; Vizcaya Museum & Gardens, Miami; and the Deste Foundation, Athens. Her work is included in the collections of the Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Fine Art Boston, the Rubell Family Collection and more.
Since 2004 she has directed BFI (Bas Fisher Invitational), a W.A.G.E. certified 501c3 exhibition platform. Currently she is creating large-scale permanent public art projects for Percent for Art programs and for the coming Underline project in Miami.
