Community by Eric Fishl

Community by Eric Fishl

In the painting “Community” of the modern American artist Erik Fischl, a story is revealed related to an ancient pagan cult or, perhaps, a sectarian ritual. A teenager in a trance state throws a coin into the community – a large stone vase in the middle of a rather gloomy room.

There are no other characters in the picture, only a long shadow stretched across the red torch light, causing associations with mysticism, sorcery, sacrament of sacrifices. Regardless of the plot, the psychological tension of many of the paintings of the modern artist Eric Fischl comes to drama, causes a sense of anxiety, which is difficult to get rid of.
