Vibrant Visions

Scott Fischer

For ages mankind has employed many tools to unravel the secrets of the universe. Ancient alchemists relied on magic more than material science, while today’s quantum physicists lean on science more heavily as they add their pinch of paradox. Scott Fischer too seeks the perfect balance between the otherworldly and the orthodox to illuminate his spiritual subjects.

In his works, we find superficially calm and composed characters brimming with nervous energy just below the surface of their skin — lit from within by a savage, crackling light. The source of this radiant energy is never fully revealed, but tinges of symbolic, surrealistic imagery describing methodical clockworks are often suggested.

A challenging assortment of intricate, yet abstract environments with overlaid strokes, washes and screens further reinforce this mechanical motif. So, while the true source of Scott’s inspiration may remain a mystery, it is safe to say that his creative gears are always in motion.
