BERTA FISCHER

BERTA FISCHER 88

source: martinasbaek

Born 1973. Lives and works in Berlin.

Berta Fischer’s remarkably light sculptures are abstract and reductive in a poetic sense of the word.

Her work appears to be the sum of material and form. Fischer uses synthetic materials like PVC and acrylic glass. Still her compositions seem natural in their own unconventional way.

One gets the impression of a straightforward presence when looking at Fischer’s sculptures. Her work has a transparent character. The colours she uses are fluorescent yellow, blue, red, green, orange and seem to lighten up the space simply by their own means.

Berta Fischer’s sculptures are of poetic lightness and luminosity; they constitute an organic sum of material and form. Most of her works are cut from transparent acrylic glass or sheer PVC film, bent, and folded; they immediately captivate the beholder. Their radiant luminescent colors—yellow, blue, red, green, orange, or pearl white—fill the room with their magical light; natural light sets their edges ablaze in dazzling colors, creating lines that look like drawings in their own right. In order to render the unparalleled color effect of the sculptures of Berta Fischer (b. Düsseldorf, 1973; lives and works in Berlin) in this book, it was printed in nine colors. The stitch binding also serves as a reference to Fischer’s more recent work.
