Joana Fischer’s delicate and intricate works combine drawing and painting, and are filled with technical, visual and conceptual juxtapositions and dualisms. The imagery in these collage-like creations reveals intertwined, connotative dream landscapes and explores environmental and existential themes. These invite the observer to roam freely beyond the canvas.
Fragments taken out of context and assembled together in a new creation: Urbanism and nature, inside and outside, specific locations and open areas, near and far, silence and commotion, superposition and exposure, resolution and desire, ease and self-absorption. With partially hidden details peeking out from behind, Fischer creates more than just visually complex and beautiful artwork—she also engages in narratives that inspire the observer to think, dream, discover, and revel in nature.
