Urs Fischer: Paintings 1998-2017
Urs Fischer, announces the first retrospective publication dedicated solely to his paintings – Paintings 1998-2017. The book comes as a set of three volumes neatly housed in a box sleeve and offers the viewer an intimate look at every painting produced from his beginnings until 2017. Fischer’s two-dimensional works elegantly encapsulate some of his biggest strengths: color, precision, and juxtaposition. His inventive approach capitalizes on the relationship between photography and painting in many works, exploring two dimensional texture. In the book, images are printed to scale relative to one another. Selected works are also printed 1:1, providing the reader a detail view not available in any other context. This retrospective includes fresh documentation of early collage works, many of which have not been exhibited for years.
