“Speed and eruption are recurring themes in the works of Katja Fischer.”
“Her painting is stylistic and dynamic and captures the viewer’s attention by facinating them with the force of movement, which is transmitted in her artworks.”
“In her dynamic and at the same time essential painting (…) the speed does not allow a detailed consideration of the panorama, however, presents our eye with a lot of fugitive brush strokes, which are set in a way that the image is perceived as a shot in motion photography. Here is the bravery of the artist: brush strokes, carried out simply but decidedly, disorient and let seem her pictures like travel photographs”.
(Roberta Finessi, curator)
It’s not about the show, but about immersion.
“In moments in which the nature extends itself in front of me, my mind turns off and a pure feeling remains. In a moment I perceive an entirety, that I’d like to record – not static, but with all its movement.”
“Motion changes, it is in constant flow. I do not move, nevertheless everything around me moves. As soon as I give myself to the movement, I become part of this movement wave – a transformation that expands and filles with energy. This means growth and a feeling of vitality. And in this vitality I submerge into my work, explore each element, touch it until its completion. In the end I am satisfied: All items are shaped into a whole, held by my hands, through my personal expierence.”
