Urs Fischer: Paintings 1998–2017
Published by the artist’s imprint Kiito-San, this three-volume monograph is the first retrospective publication dedicated solely to Urs Fischer’s paintings, organizing nearly two decades of work into a taxonomy conceptualized by the artist. Fischer’s two-dimensional works elegantly encapsulate some of his greatest strengths: color, precision, and juxtaposition. His inventive approach to image making capitalizes on the relationship between photography and painting. The book includes documentation of early collage works, many of which have never been exhibited, and actual size reproductions, providing the reader with detail views not available in any other context.
