Originally from Tennessee, Fischer has lived in Switzerland for the past thirty years. The artist maintains strong connections in both countries; spending equal time at her Bern and Memphis studios.
“I pursue shapes and colors. My semi-abstract, expressionist portraits tell a story of whimsical spontaneity. Based on an underpainting my art begins to emerge as color and texture are added layer by layer. The landscapes pull the viewer into a world of color, light, and emotion. My body of work has developed and evolved over time, with much of the outcome being driven by creative impulses.” -Kelly Fischer
“Blending Worlds” is the seventh edition of Art @ The Consulate, a curatorial initiative by the Consulate General of Switzerland in New York to showcase the work of Swiss artists in the United States.
