Urs Fischer: Bandaids
Bandaids brings together two separately exhibited series of silkscreened paintings with colored sculpted resin frames. These works were produced in 2018 by New York based artist Urs Fischer. The artist composed the collective 57 works entirely in an iPhone app, a tool always on hand in almost any life situation, allowing him to keep creating at any moment. When translated from device to painting medium, the resulting works have a glowing quality. Fischer’s process blends drawing, painting and silkscreen to create groupings that react with each other to form dynamic and varied narratives. Echoes of subjects present in Fischer’s early works – cats, bread houses, birds – personify romance and playfulness in this highly surreal series.
