Berta Fischer

The sculptures made out of acrylic glass continue the artist’s sustained engagement with the rich possibilities of this industrial material. Each of these sculptures emerged from a tiered process involving CAD drawings, computer-controlled laser cutting and the actual modelling by hand. Fischer thus highlights the material’s properties, even though her striking forms may make one forget this material dimension at first sight. Resulting from a patient process of bending and folding perspex plates, her sculptures seem like images of frozen movements, both animated and still, fragile and unyielding.
