February 26 – March 1, 2020  

Renowned, globally exhibited and collected visual artist, Kelly Fischer will make her Madrid debut with VESANIART gallery at ARTIST Feria de Arte Contemporáneo from February 26 through March 1, 2020.

VESANIART’s booth at ARTIST Feria de Arte Contemporáneo will feature four works from the artist’s ‘Street Art’ series; an urban art project that employs St. Bernard Pass as backgrounds, exponentially enhanced and enriched by the addition of multiple layers of colors, shapes, lines, and movement that lead viewers through the subjective labyrinths of her fertile creative mind. Through abstraction, Fischer transforms the raw emotions provoked by urban environments; in which the audience will discover characters, scenes…as their imagination takes flight where the artist’s left off. 

Fischer shares, “my work begins to emerge as color and texture are added layer by layer. Landscapes push the viewer to a world of color, light, and emotion. Much of the result is driven by unconscious creative drives. I seek to capture the raw beauty of two places that I love deeply and inspire me: the stunning landscapes of Switzerland and the concrete art jungle of New York. The marked difference and coincidence is that both landscapes equally move me; which makes me want to share with the audience the common points of both that make them so energizing and able to fill my work with strength.”

The Street Art Series reflect, not only the energy and exuberance of the city as a muse, but that of its creator embodied in her large-scale works. Her past exhibitions include International Contemporary Art Fairs such as SCOPE Miami, SCOPE New York, London International Art Events, and the Austria and Venice Biennales; as well as countless global shows in galleries and a variety of venues in England, Florida, New York, Spain, Switzerland Tennessee, and other cities across the globe. Her work is part of the collections of the Boca Raton’s Florida Jewish Foundation; the Memphis, Tennessee Germantown Performing Arts Center; Miami, Florida’s Miami Dade College; and Bern, Switzerland’s Widmar Halle.

ARTIST Contemporary Art Fair will be located at C/ del Cid 8 esquina Calle Villanueva 2. Madrid, Spain. Hours will be from 3 PM – 9 PM on February 26 and from 11 AM to 9 PM on February 27 – March 1.

About the Artist, Kelly Fisher:

Scope Art Fair Miami, the Austrian Biennale, and the Venice Biennale. Aside from art, Kelly has published eleven children’s books and is the former founder and head of the English Montessori School of Bern.

About the Gallery: 

Vesaniart promotes the work of Spanish artists in and outside Spain to facilitate artistic exchange between countries to promote cooperation and communication. Switzerland being its country of preference, the work of Swiss artists Daniel Garbade and Kelly Fischer will be shown for the first time in Malaga. Once again, the Mijas City Council positions itself as a key institution in support of art and culture; making it possible for “Sube al Sur” exhibition to now be presented in Spain and supporting the success of Malaga artists from outside our borders.
