34 paintings that set out to achieve visual equivalences of the multilayered narratives of Schubert’s Winterreise and John Clare’s Journey out of Essex, with the aim of developing the liminal, fictive territory that can be seen to exist in and between them. Work was exhibited at Eagle Gallery, London (I Came Here a Stranger) and Campden Gallery, Gloucestershire (As a Stranger I Depart). One of the paintings is now in the collection of the Jerwood Foundation, London. Two other paintings were procured for The Hive, Worcester’s art collection by WLHC ProjectCo. The exhibition was accompanied by a catalogue, JAMES FISHER. I came here a stranger, as a stranger I depart, with essays by Martin Holman and James Fisher and 15 colour illustrations, pub Campden Gallery and Eagle Gallery/EMH Arts, 2008, ISBN 978-0-9554046-7-2
The paintings were subsequently exhibited in a solo exhibition, My Hopes Are Not Entirely Hopeless at Aldeburgh Festival 2009. One Painting was later selected for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2010 and illustrated in Royal Academy Illustrated 2010 pub. Royal Academy of Arts, 2010. ISBN 1905711565.
