“Geometric Abstractions” solo exhibition at AOY features New Hope artist Chuck Fischer


The artwork of New Hope artist Chuck Fischer will be featured in a solo exhibition, “Geometric Abstractions,” presented by the AOY Arts Center of Yardley, from Friday, Oct. 27 through Sunday, Oct. 29, at The Patterson Farm, located at 949 Mirror Lake Road in Yardley (Upper Makefield).

The hours are noon to 5 p.m. daily, with a special opening reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 27, open to the public.

Fischer’s geometric abstract constructions break the plane of two-dimensional painting and are composed of colored, textured, and multi-layered elements made from common materials. He creates visual complexity by varying the depth, color, and texture of each piece to draw the viewer into the work. He never sketches before starting a new piece but trusts his intuition and the materials at hand to guide him as he creates works of spatial balance and harmony.

His work is in corporate and private collections and was recently featured in the fine art magazines, Artists Magazine and Woven Tale Press. Earlier in his career, Fischer created nine pop-up books, including “Great American Houses and Gardens” (Rizzoli/Universe) and “Christmas in New York” (Little, Brown & Co.).

His designs are in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian’s Cooper Hewitt Museum and Museum of American History, and in the Artist Book section of the Library of Congress. Fischer is represented by Atlantic Gallery, New York City, Manolis Projects Gallery, Miami, Fla., Bonfoey Gallery, Cleveland, Ohio and ADC Fine Art, Cincinnati, Ohio.

The artist says, “While a maze is all about finding a way out, I want the viewer to find a way into my constructions and stay a while.”
