City consists of a multi-chambered structure made of glass, steel, and cast aluminum. Each chamber is at least partially see-through, with some revealing their enclosed contents through clear glass, while others are empty or partially obscured by swaths of colorful silkscreen ink. With its tower like components, this sculpture refers to the ambition of building skyscrapers, of setting out, of going from one place to another, in search of success. It is a poetic sea and strata of bold colors filled with art history reference, pop influence, noise of the streets, billboard imagery, and the signage and literature of the city. As with much of Fischer’s work, City will change over time, creating a singular and ever-evolving experience.
