Kelly Fischer presents the “Street Art” series: an urban art project in which by using the ‘St. Bernard Pass’ as a background and through multiple layers, the artist takes us to other urban settings that are equally commonplace for her -confusing them, mixing them and reconstructing them-.
Through abstraction, the artist instinctively transforms the raw emotions that everyday urban environments provoke, converting them into shapes, colors and intense movements. In them, the audience will be able to see different people and characters.
The Street Art series, recently exhibited in New York, reflects not only the energy and exuberance of the city as a muse but that of its creator, embodied in large-scale works.
“My work begins to emerge as color and texture are added layer by layer. Landscapes push the viewer to a world of color, light and emotion. Much of the result is driven by unconscious creative drives”.
“I seek to capture the raw beauty of two places that I love deeply and inspire me: the stunning landscapes of Switzerland and the concrete and art jungle of New York. The marked difference and at the same time coincidences of both landscapes inspire me, which makes me want to share with the audience the common points of both that make them so energizing and that fill my work with strength”.
During 2019 Kelly Fischer has been present at International Contemporary Art Fairs such as SCOPE New York, Art Basel Miami, Contemporary Arts Project USA, London International Art Events or the Venice Biennale.Find out more »
