His artistic practice is defined by the loss of referentials, uncertainty and alienation through his painting and the very place of the work in space. Rita Fisher’s paintings are abstract landscapes where different objects and materials are connected and mixed. Thus each element of the painting acts as indicators of a path to follow, which mixed together result in a hybrid that makes the viewer lose all its references.
Rita Fisher’s works project the sensation of disintegration and permanent reconstruction and place the viewer in a space where temporality is indefinite, in order to create a meditative situation, a state of presence, contemplation and faith even for a few seconds.
