Expressionist art has exploded in the latest show entitled, “Here’s Looking at You” at the Colin Fisher Studios in Cathedral City.

Each one of the 500 or so paintings is from Fisher’s collection, which means he purchased it outright, and now it’s for sale. In his gallery flyer, Fisher says that he turned down at least 10 paintings for each one he’s purchased.

Some of the paintings are from well known artists, such as Picasso, to street artists, such as Purvis Young, both with hefty price tags. Yet, prices for this remarkable art range from $400 to $40,000. Among the standout pieces is a wall-sized homage to the Mona Lisa by a Polish artist, Vladmir Prodanovich, who shows regularly at the gallery, and an oversized portrait of a woman’s head made entirely out of cardboard.
