In Lampworks, Fischer has returned to creating light sculptures, the subject which originally brought his work attention in the 1980’s. The new sculptures pull from decades of working as designer, sculptor, architect and social mediator. Mechano-like metal support structures form the basis of each lamp, around which Fischer wraps, bolts, sews and stretches their vinyl and fabric skins. The elegant, playful skins obscure the more menacing architectural bases in a balance typically only present in the work of artists whose practice has known the rise and fall of currencies, climates and hopes.
This will be R.M. Fischer’s first solo exhibition in Miami. Fischer’s works are in the permanent collections of the Brooklyn Museum, The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Jewish Museum, The New Museum of Contemporary Art, The Dallas Museum, the Museo Tamayo, the Broad Foundation, the Rubell Family Collection, the Carnegie Museum of Fine Art and various other public collections around the world. He most recently was featured in Midtown, a group exhibition co-organized by Maccarone and Salon 94 Design.
