Robert Fleisher refuses to look at the world the way the rest of us do. The self-taught painter, who resides in Miami Beach, creates microscopically detailed work using watercolor and oil. Meticulously rendered faces, hands, hair, buildings, and textures in Fleisher's paintings may for a moment be mistaken as ordinary representation, but not for long. A closer look reveals that conventions of space, perspective, matter and gravity are broken at will.

Stream-of-consciousness associations abound in his work, and often present the viewer a distinct sense of disorientation. Strange characters and odd juxtapositions make frequent appearances along with the ordinary, challenging the viewer to mine his or her own associations for meaning.

Signs, symbols and words often play a powerful role in his paintings. Billboards, advertisements and graffiti make frequent appearances. But again, Fleisher reads them his own way, revealing to us their oblique and hidden meanings.

His work can be found in the private collections of Wayne Newton, Mickey Rooney, James Woods, Paul and Joanne Woodward Newman and James Lipton, among others.
