Artitst interview with Eric Fischl produced for his exhibition Eric Fischl: Paintings, November 23, 1985 - February 2, 1986, organized by: MCA, Mendel Art Gallery, Saskatoon Saskatchewan, Canada and curated by: Bruce W. Ferguson and Lynne Warren. In the interview, Eric Fischl discusses: how his work is mostly fictional and not autobiographical; his work process; his work Bad Boy; his use of contemporary objects to make his figure paintings modern; his interest in the effects produced by putting a TV in a painting; how the objects that we live with assume identities; why he never works from models; audience interaction with his paintings; his work Daddy's Girl; and how the relationship between the viewer and his works relates to the relationship between the Greeks and their gods. Video includes shots of his works Bayonne, 1985; Bad Boy, 1981; Time for Bed, 1980; A Funeral, 1980; A Woman Possessed, 1981; Pizza Eater, 1982; New House, 1982; Untitled (Two Women in Bedroom), 1982; Master Bedroom, 1983; Daddy's Girl, 1984; and A Visit to/A Visit From/The Island, 1983.
