1974 · Switzerland
Showcasing the incredible power of pure color, Swiss artist Frank Fischer uses glossy hues seamlessly draped across aluminum surfaces to create a veritable bar code of color.
Building on the legacies of mid-century masters like the Hard Edge painters, Fischer pushes those ideals even further in his reductive process of painting with pure color. The surface of his works become a cascade of striking colors that take on a life of their own and encourage the viewer to navigate through their dynamic surfaces. Fischer’s art is both abstract and defined, making it revolutionary in its premise.
Born in Zurich, Switzerland, Fischer moved to London to attend the Byam Shaw School of Art for his BA and then the Chelsea College of Art for his MFA. He has enjoyed the inclusion of his work in numerous exhibitions around Europe. Recent solo showcases include exhibitions at the Hans Alf Gallery in Copenhagen, Denmark (2011); Radical Art Contemporain in Strasbourg, France (2012); and the Kunsthaus Hänisch in Schlei, Germany (2015).
