FISK “UNTITLED PORTRAIT”
Canadian artist William Fisk has a once in a lifetime opportunity: to be represented by a renowned American gallery. Having been let go by his Canadian dealer, Fisk has double-mortgaged his home, staking his family’s future and well-being on this gamble so that they can survive while he paints a new body of work for the American market. A successful sale will mean his career will reach a level he never imagined, but failure to interest the New York gallery’s collectors will mean ruin.
