With sculptures carrying names such as “Faceoff” and “Royal Rumble,” you wouldn’t expect Mario David Fischer’s pictures to be wiry in appearance. In fact, one can argue they are not sculptures at all, but that Fischer is merely manipulating how our eyes view the subjects. From one point of view, the separate and assembled drawings on acrylic glass can seem disjointed and nonsensical. While from another, the vantage point provides the perfect perspective to catch the emotion in conflict.
Regardless if you’d argue for or against these works as being sculptures, one must appreciate Fischer’s eye for depth perception as displayed by the glass, and applauded for challenging the viewer into questioning which fundamental category (drawing or sculpture) this piece falls into. And that’s part of the shock value: making subtle comments that disagree with your peers. A conflict of ideas and views.
