In my current body of work I am exploring the possibilities of merging sculpture, painting and photography to create alternate realities of a singular subject matter. My forms, whether three-dimensional or two, resemble foreign bodies, fetish objects and sentient natural phenomena. In my paintings I construct imagery in swathes of colorful paint, while in sculptural form textural stimuli is fore-fronted. By starting with a physical sculpture and then reinterpreting it through the documentation of the camera and my own gaze, I am exploring concepts relating to the breakdown of objectivity and materiality. – Rachel Fischer
