Chase Family Gallery
Works by Dina Schwarz Fisher
September 6 – October 21, 2018
In Testimony, artist Dina Schwarz Fisher explores questions of memory – what can be remembered, what can be reconstructed, what can't. Necessarily, art is a matter of testimony in one way or another: a public statement of a private dream. In this collection of images, Fisher gives voice to a few such dreams. They are based on photos and shadows of memory, and stories retold. They also include a memorial to lost family – bubbes, zaydes, cousins – killed by Nazis and their collaborators.
Dina Schwarz Fisher studied art at Brown University and the Yale School of Art. A graduate of UConn School of Law, she practiced law for twenty years. Dina lives in Hartford, CT.
