Berta Fischer scatters pieces of her imagination across the gallery floor. Strewn across the gallery space are creatures from the far-flung corners of her mind. The colourful remains of an idea, or a late night musing. These creations form different worlds and spheres, floating colours and lights.
Fischer’s acrylglass sculptures look like marbled water rippling with colour, like seafoam at the edge of the ocean.
The Berlin-based artist creates such effortless looking shapes, they appear as if crafted from some higher power. It seems impossible to imagine one person as the driving force behind them. Her work is playful; it invites you to remind yourself of your senses, to stare through the translucent glass and to lose yourself in the curvature.
Her sculptures speak volumes with silence. They simply exist as creations. As you stare at their holographic forms, which twist and dance to a silent rhythm, it is up to you to impose your own poetry and philosophy on them. They exist as things of mystery and beauty, to be discovered and internalized by the viewer and the gallery walls.
