until 18.06. | #3034ARTatBerlin | Galerie ART CRU Berlin presents from 29th April 2021 a Solo Show with works by the artist Robert Fischer. In 2007 he was awarded the recognition prize at the international art competition Euward.
The wealth of knowledge, of narrative and pictorial descriptive art makes his works seem literally charged. Each picture seems to contain truths that Fischer interprets, describes and conveys. In his works, several levels of shaping and reporting overlap. First, the artist puts a proliferating and interconnected system of signs and images on paper.
When looking at it, one instinctively tries (in vain) to decipher the long rows of signs, which are reminiscent of (familiar) letters and numbers, and in part appear as if “mirror-inverted”. Fischer combines these sequences with minimalist drawings: Crosses, or combinations of short lines or circles that sometimes make you think of faces. Often these signs and shapes are organised into groups and joined together by framing lines. After the majority of the sheet has thus been coded and pictured with the first layer – this sometimes happens airily with many open spaces, sometimes close together, as if Fischer wanted to spread a veritable net of information over the limited space of the picture ground – he begins to layer a second layer over it in pastel, oil pastels, ink and fibre paints. The rather cool and rational-narrative ground of the picture is thus placed in an exciting connection with these emotionally dynamic colour surfaces. In some works Fischer finally overwrites the second layer of colour with a white fibre painter, which really catches the eye, and a further layering of drawing references. It seems as if he wants to give the viewer one last explanation before he lets the picture go.
Robert Fischer (*1974 in Gera), who has been working in the workshops of the Braunschweig Lebenshilfe for some time, has also been working as an artist in their Geyso20 studio since 2004. The artistic director had invited him to the group because he had always drawn on A4 sheets during breaks and at home. He usually works on a single sheet for several weeks.
