Justyne Fischer is a Washington, D.C. based Social Justice Printmaker. Originally from Kalamazoo, Michigan, Justyne graduated with a BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute and an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art. Justyne’s “Social Memorials” feature unjust events involving unarmed Black men, women and boys. The Charlottesville 9, Terence Crutcher, Sandra Bland, Laquan McDonald, Walter Scott, Freddy Gray, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, William Wingate, Jordan Davis, and Trayvon Martin are all featured in these graphic social statements. Her works highlight the tragedy of each event while respectfully memorializing the human being beyond a one-day headline. Recently, Fischer began exploring the roots of systematic racism in America. The implications of “Blackness” are questioned, examined, and challenged through woodcut and installation media. Fischer’s work has been featured in The San Francisco Examiner, The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, East City Art Magazine, Professional Artist Magazine, Artscope Magazine, Wall Street International Magazine, The Journal of Cultural Research in Art Education and the new book, “Not Normal: Art in the Age of Trump.” You can find Fischer’s woodcuts in the permanent collection of the Boston Athenaeum, the Boston Public Library, John Lewis High School and Montgomery College.
