R.M. Fischer: Otherworldly Beings

R.M. Fischer installation at  KS ART gallery 2011.

There's a strange and wonderful alchemy going on at the KS Art gallery this month.  A collection of sculptures created by artist R.M. Fischer are holding court with wit and whimsy.  Copper wire, threaded rod, electrical and plumbing parts,steel cables, vinyl, thread and fabric  are just a few of the materials used to create these otherworldly beings. Just exactly when you start thinking of them as old friends is hard to say, but when the time comes it's hard to walk away.
 R.M. Fischer's public art sculptures include "Rector Gate" and "Battery Tunnel Clock" in lower-Manhattan.  A veteran of solo exhibitions since 1980, he has just been awarded a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship for fine arts.
